Dr. Xavier Mir (MotoGP™ Traumatology Specialist): “Marc Marquez underwent surgery 13 days ago and today he returned to the operating room. The first operation was successful, what was not expected was that the plate was insufficient. An accumulation of stress in the operated area has caused the plate to suffer some damage, so today the titanium plate has been removed and replaced by a new fixation. The rider has not felt pain during this period. He has always followed the medical advice given and the feeling from his body. Unfortunately, an over stress has caused this issue. Now we have to wait 48 hours to understand the recovery time.”
I guess you could say “I told you so”. I have a feeling he’s going to sit this one out completely and let everything set.
What dose of painkillers do you have to be on to damage a titanium plate in your arm? :O
