After the Injury by Bryan Jones Jr.
After suffering what many people are calling the worst knee injury in the history of Mixed Martial Arts [Watch Here] Bryan Jones Jr. will be keeping us all updated about his recovery right here on MMAmadhouse.com. As we found out on Episode 58 of LiVE Bryan nearly lost his leg as this injury pinched his main artery in his leg. Here’s Bryan’s first update
AFTER 6 DAYS
“I did see my Dr yesterday who will be doing my surgeries. He did say “we are out of the wood for loosing the leg“, so I get to keep my leg. I did tear all ligaments and tendons in the knee not just the main 4. So although I do not remember them all but I did tear the PCL, LCL, MCL all the damn LC’s in my leg, lol. My Meniscus is folded in half and turned upside down, so it will need surgery all alone. The goal is one massive fix it all in 6 to 8 weeks once the swelling goes down and things will heal correctly. I will be able to walk and eventually run, more than likely the recovery is going to take a year but you all know me I plan to come back sooner than that without pushing too hard. I can’t say thank you enough to all the support, everyone has been so supportive”
I wanted to update you. Surgery went well, the Dr said it went as well as it could. Total time was over 6 hours in surgery. I did not know it but due to complications or non repairable items 20%-25% of people who have this severe of a surgery still loose the limb. I have 3 incisions and 4 orthoscopic holes totaling 42 staples in my leg. I had 10 total screw locations in my bones (some are plugs some are screws). I have to admit Tuesday was surgery and midday Wednesday when the nerve block wore off I experienced the worst pain I have ever experienced in my life. I have physical therepy starting in 3 weeks and staples removed in 2 weeks. Finally I am in forward progress, though painfull I am happy to be moving forward. Thank you again for all you wishes and prayers.
