Tyson – Part 2

More news: Miami sucks.
Also, Tyson had orthopedic surgery this morning. We had a chance to talk to the surgeon about an hour ago and we’re waiting to see him. They did a lot or work and, according to the surgeon, it went well. Basically an internal fixator was installed as well as some bolts to the posterior part of the pelvis into the sacrum. What does that mean? Basically there is an arc of metal just under his skin that’s attached to his pelvis on both sides via bolts and all that is supposed to hold is pelvis in place. When he wrecked, the front of the pelvis opened and, at the same time, crushed part of his sacrum at the back of his pelvis. So the bolts in the back are intended to hold the sacrum together while it repairs itself. It looks like the ring in the front will have to come off in 6 months and the bolts in the back will stay indefinitely. The doc said he thought he could be moved in 10 days or so but really he can’t say for sure because there’s still urology stuff to be done. When the pelvis broke, the bladder was ruptured as well so there will be another surgery to fix that. We haven’t been able to see him yet so we’re waiting. Stay tuned.
