Haven't read the original text but..."Patrick Lefevere flew in with a straight leg last week " I love literal translations of idioms. Is this one a karate allusion?
"certainly not those of his estate agents ": his injuries have forced him to sell his house?
That's actually, although so formal, very touching. All the best to Fabio.A message from the man himself!
The most important thing, is that his palate still has to heal, and that one of his vocal chords may end up being damaged. If this is the case, it could impede his respiration and be a big deal as a pro athlete. He also said recovery will take much longer than Evenepoel's.Lefevere said in an interview that they removed 130(!) stitches from his face and that he only got 1 tooth left.
The past 2 months have been dominated by my recovery after my crash in the Tour of Poland.
First of all, I had to recover from my brain contusion and other bruises/injuries for a long time.
The wounds/scars on my face are healing up well.
I would like to thank all the staff of the LUMC and in particular Dr. H. Locher and M. Hendriksma for the good care these past months.
On October 8, I will undergo a second surgery to reconstruct my face/mouth.
The surgery takes place at Radboud UMC Nijmegen and I am in the hands of Prof. Dr. S. Bergé and Prof. Dr. G. Meijer.
The surgery involves placing bone, taken from my pelvic crest, in my upper and lower jaw, because a lot of bone is missing there.
This bone will have to heal for several months.
After that, another surgery will take place to put implants in my jaw so that I can get new teeth, as I lost them during my crash.
My last surgery went well and right now the main focus is to let the transplanted bone heal. Both my hip and mouth are painful but day by day I am progressing. Thank you all for the messages I received! It is motivating me to make the best of it and try to get back as strong as possible!
