Wishing Plushy good recovery, poor guy another surgery. I worry about him.
I have to visit this thread more often I had no idea that Alissa had a second surgery. Get well soon Alissa!
Can't we know Alissa has the second surgery?? Poor Alissa.

No word yet on what Adam's injury is. Wishing Adam a quick recovery.
Drat! Adam's program was so wonderful. I was hoping to hear that he had good results with it at 4CC.
another setback for Rippon but could be capitalized by Richard
he could pull the highest American placement or even podium
Thanks golden411 - That sounds horrible indeed and I hope she recovers soon!
And thanks demarinis5 for alerting us about Adam Rippon - all I've seen since is this IN article:
- but all it really says is:
"Rippon, who placed fifth at the 2013 U.S. Championships, sustained an ankle injury Saturday. He is expected to make a full recovery."
Does anyone have additional info?
Talking of 4CC withdrawals - does anyone know details about Pang/Tong? Is it their old injuries plaguing them, or has something additional occurred? With Sui/Han I'm guessing it is that she has not recovered yet? Does anyone have any update on her and how she's doing?
For round-up purposes, here are two threads about people who, hopefully, are still on the road to recovery:
Bazarova & Larionov resume practice
Adrian Schultheiss update
@Nigel - I think you raise some interesting questions - I've not seen anything since on Jeremy's back - but maybe someone else has? Meanwhile, you can find more details on Plushy's surgery & the state of his back before it, in this post, courtesy of let's talk:
Actually, reading this:
"When yesterday the operation began, he saw that the situation is actually much worse than it could have been predicted by MRI. It turned out that he had an old hernia (which he had treated several times, by the way) and a new hernia, the one that compresses the nerve. It is in the lumbosacral spine. This department is responsible for the strength of legs, and exactly there he had a hernia that was compressing the nerve. It was not only the pressure, but the disk was completely destroyed. It was destroyed to the point that there was the second hernia that was also pressing on the nerve. In such situation it was necessary to do the surgery."
reminds me that I heard previously that Jeremy's trouble was connected to a nerve in his back? and that he had difficulty feeling his legs all during the Skate America FS? But maybe someone else, with a better memory, can comment on the details of it?
I read about the surgery on another sports site, and it sounds tremendously delicate. I gather they put in a synthetic disc. Can you imagine the danger to the spinal nerves of such a surgery? I'm sure the recovery period is crucial. I just hope Plushenko listens this time and doesn't start training prematurely, or he'll be in huge trouble. I understand that he thinks he's Superman, but even if that were true, this operation is kryptonite.
I hope the ills of Mirai, Alena, Alissa et al get cured even if it is in their head.
Okay does anyone know what happened to Adam Rippon? What injury does he have at 4CC's?

I heard it was an ankle injury, but should heal fairly soon. No details...a sprain? ... a strain?

I've really been neglecting "my" little thread (Awww! pats thread reassuringly), but I came across this article:
which made me think of digging it up. It is an article on French skaters that - among other things - contains an update on Yrétha Silété's progress, also a word or two on Fabian Bourzat, that makes it relevant to this thread.
Also, as always, any info on injured/recovering skaters always welcome and gratefully received.

Hopefully the rash of injuries that we saw this season won't happen next Olympic season.

Indeed! (shudders at the bare thought)

Yes--I hope 2013–2014 is an injury-free zone.

In this interview Konstantin Menshov talks a little about his injury:
"I've just returned from Nice (France), where we had a training camp, but for me it was more (about) rest and recovery. There, I first went to the ice after the injury. I've tried to skate very carefully and almost without working with my injured shoulder.
Honestly, I was afraid that [returning to the ice] could be far worse after nearly a month break, but in the second training session I felt that I could do a quadruple jump even if I hadn't had the injury. The doctors told me not to make any abrupt and sudden movements in the shoulder until early June. In general, the recovery is going well, but, unfortunately, the shoulder sometimes still hurts. So, I'll continue visiting the hospital in order to continue my recovery process."
As always, if You have any news or updates on injured skaters - please share!
