Don't Look Up!
- Aug 26, 2011
I get the sense that @HuskyNan wants the discussion on the thread that was started on the injury moved here. So here's a reply to that thread that I didn't post there.
Thanks for finding that article. I had posted about the injury news in the Sunday games thread yesterday. What gives us hope that they're not just blowing smoke about the recovery time is stuff like how Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa was back in practice 2 weeks after ankle surgery.
I was curious about the study you posted, so I took advantage of my university access to the full text. As with most things involving human subjects, the study has limitations wrt the numbers. They started with 66 patients who were a mix of ages, male and female, which finger was broken etc. By the first assessment, at week 6, they had lost 10 subjects for various reasons (7 didn't show up, 1 was an inclusion error, 1 reinjured the hand, 1 withdrew). More fell by the wayside as the study went on. With those caveats:
I'm guessing that makes the difference if she does make it back for the NCAAs won't be superhuman patients, but rather the extent to which rehab will be managed differently than if one of us had the same injury and surgery.
I couldn't find this discussion yet again so I'll repeat what I said in my short thread just a couple of minutes ago:
Apologies Nan, but I just spent 5 minutes looking for that with no luck, so I just will post this and then move on:
According to Blair she has two fractures and had six pins/screws placed. You can see his whole interview in the article below. How good a dribbler/shooter is she left handed?
Texas A&M's Chennedy Carter out with injury until NCAA tournament
Is that new nonUConn board within a board what you are referencing Nan and where is it? The nonUconn news thread is where I wasted 5 minutes.
