    Jharal Yow Yeh injury update thread

    I'd imagine there's going to be heaps of updates over the next few weeks about Yow Yeh's injury and recovery, so thought having them all in one thread would make it easy for us to stay updated.

    Courier Mail said today that the doctor is confident his career isn't over. Expected to be in hospital for the next fortnight undergoing multiple operations to insert plates and pins.

    There was even a mention of the Broncos having a slight hope that Yow Yeh would be available for the finals. Not sure it's worth the risk to be honest. I'm not doctor obviously but if he misses the finals it gives him another 6 months recovery.

    Confidence will be a big factor in this I think.

    I heard today, it would be days before they could operate on the poor kid.

    Yeah, they had to clean the wound in Perth, close him up, and then wait to see the swelling go down and be sure there's no infection in it before opening him up and putting his bones back together. Poor fella.

    Been some nice tweets from teammates visiting him. Jordan Kahu posted a nice pic of him in hospital. Apparently he's in good spirits, so that's a good thing.

    I read in article that the Broncos still hold out slim hope that he could return at the end of the year. Personally I think that is not going to happen but I am no Doctor. I think he will most certainly face some mental hurdles on his comeback. It is the type of injury where a month of QLD cup would be needed before he could come back into first grade IMO.

    And look what happened to Scott Prince. He had a similar break, if anything not as bad, was out for a full 12 months and when he came back, 2nd game back in fact, he broke his leg again (not seriously).

    The longer you can give him the better. Agree with Jeba. Give him the full offseason to recover.
    All speculation at this stage anyway.

    I just can't believe how good he was when it happened. He was so calm in pointing out that he was in trouble. It was almost as if he didn't care about the pain or anything.

    Wasn't he looking at is saying Oh ****, oh ****?? He was pretty calm though. Hodges did a pretty good job of making him lay down and not look. I've never broken a bone so I couldn't begin to imagine the pain he was in.

    As long as Yowie avoids infection he could be back in a year I reckon. If the bone gets infected though it could be a whole lot longer, if ever. I guess we'd better hope he washed his socks.

    He went into complete Shock. the poor bloke went white as a ghost. It was one of those moments when you know you've hurt yourself bad, but it's not until you look at it that you realise how bad it is and you can't really comprehend what has happenned -- Just like the time when I was batting during softball my fingernail was completely ripped off in a failed attempt at bunting the ball........

    Really? Having read Jeba's post, there's no way in the world I would have known that.

    I'm pretty sure Karmichael Hunt suffered a similar injury duing the 1999 Acacia Ridge TeeBall Championships too

    I'm surprised there's no link about his brave recovery on his website!

    I'm happy enough that he'll heal up properly, so if he misses the rest of the year so be it.

    Looks like he still hasn't had surgery and needs a skin graft. From the Broncos website.

    SURGERY to repair Broncos Test winger Jharal Yow Yeh's fractured and dislocated right ankle has been put on hold because the 22-year-old requires a skin graft.

    Eleven days after his horrific mishap against South Sydney in Perth, Yow Yeh remains in hospital awaiting an operation which it is hoped will set him on the path to a full recovery.

    Broncos coach Anthony Griffin said last night Yow Yeh remained upbeat, but he admitted the delay was frustrating.

    "He needs a graft where there was a compound fracture," Griffin said. "He needs fresh skin around the wound and they can't operate at the moment because there is too big a risk of infection.

    "(Orthopaedic surgeon) Dr Peter Myers said Jharal is handling things well. He is remaining positive.

    "It's a frustrating process, but they must get it right."

    Yow Yeh sustained a compound comminuted fracture dislocation of the right ankle when he fell heavily after contesting a high ball.

    Dr Myers said last week that Yow Yeh would not play this year, but there was a chance he could report for training ahead of the 2013 season.

    I'd be losing it if I had to stay in hospital for 11 days in a row, ouch.

    Good luck to him
