Jorge Lorenzo completes successful collarbone surgery

Jorge Lorenzo has undergone successful surgery to plate and screw the left collarbone he broke in a high-speed crash during a rain-hit second MotoGP practice session at Assen in Holland yesterday. The reigning world champion flew home to Barcelona last night and immediately underwent a two-hour operation at the Hospital General de Catalunya to insert a titanium plate and eight screws...

Looks like both wrists are damaged as well - right wrist bandaged and left hand and forearm heavily bandaged ?

hmm

Like FFS, I recently had a bike crash and broke my collar bone, the best the NHS did was make me wait 5 hours to give me something to support it, which I coulda bought at a shop and told me to come back in 8 weeks. I couldn't make it at that time because I have a life so I phoned up and they rearranged it for July 8th......... like over 3 months after the fucking accident. So now I have a giant bump and it's still painful. We so need to adopt the US system, people with jobs get healthcare so we get rid of this shitty service and stop giving it away to free loaders.

JustBe

in case you hadn't noticed this is a motorcycle forum so keep your ridiculous political ramblings for the Daily Mail.

and in case you were wondering you could go private to get your bone plated if you're that worried

and on that subject, you think when the tories(and labour and the LD's and the SNP and............................................................) have destroyed the NHS you'll get your taxes reduced?

google "useful idiots".

jesus fucking christ, there's none so blind as those that can't see.

 

Good luck on your recovery Jorge.

A few comments are suggesting Jorge runs a single lap from pit lane and gets himself a new engine . A small victory but could prove vital. The season is a long way from over.

What is JustBe complaining about?

"Unfortunately no operation room was available in Assen due to some other very urgent life threatening operations that had much higher priority than Jorge's collarbone."

So Jorge had to wait, like JustBe. Surgery is only required in 10% of cases anyway. If the two ends of bone are still in place the bone heals naturally.

How indignant can you be when you declined the first appointment because you "have a life"? You are getting a proper service, you just don't appreciate it.

When

I destroyed my wrist working as a tree surgeon in south London the ambulance crews, nurses, doctors and consultants were second to none. As I fell from a height an air ambulance was called and I was treated by the doctors on board but went to A&e in an ambulance. I had to have a titanium extender put in my wrist that is normally used for ankle injuries. I cannot thank these people enough as I was told I would not be going back to work or ride a motorcycle again, but thanks to the nhs I was climbing trees again and I now ride my fireblade without any weakening of my wrist. 6 months off work as well. If you want to get political about it I could not claim any money whilst off work which is f*cking disgraceful, so had to live on credit cards whilst my future was uncertain. If you want to go private great but you dont go to a private clinic if you have an accident you go to a&e and get treated just like everyone else. The cost of my treatment if done privately would have been over £75,000. I got it for free.
