Cam's surgery was successful

Recommended Posts

These chatty nurses at CMC need to keep their mouths shut. Poor Rick from WFNZ's wife is probably going to be fired and lose her license over telling him about Cam's surgery before it was officially announced and if CMC can piece together who OP's wife is (if this is legit) then she's next on the chopping block. You gossipy husbands need to keep your mouths shut or at least not say how you got the information.

 

CMC could be sued. I hope this Rick name is an alias

Am curious to know what kind of surgery he had. Four months is a long recovery time for a clean out.

 

They might be just precautionary just to make sure it's fully healed.

Hopefully Cam will learn if he needs minor surgery to get it done soon after the season is over. Can't be waiting till mid March or April to decide you need surgery. He will have new WRs this season and they need to work on their chemistry together.

Patients don't decide when they should have surgeries, doctors do. Any orthopedic surgery is a crap shoot, some with better odds than others, and should be considered a last resort.

Staying off the ankle/anti-inflammatory for awhile etc. should be tried before cutting.

If you don't think Cam is being advised from some if the best doctors in the country, you are incorrect.

ESPN's Stephania Bell, a board-certified orthopedic clinical specialist, said Newton's effectiveness as a runner shouldn't be impacted by the surgery.
"In fact, regaining full motion and strength are far more important in the early phase than full-speed running," she wrote in her blog Wednesday.

The news that Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is having ankle surgery Wednesday that is expected to sideline him for approximately four months generated a wave of anxiety about the potential consequences. There has been concern expressed about how Newton's absence from spring activities will affect his ability to develop rapport with his new receivers. The question has also been raised, perhaps more importantly, about how this procedure will impact his signature style of play, and whether his mobility will be compromised.

In truth, one could make the case that not only will neither of these things suffer from Newton undergoing surgery at this juncture, but both may actually benefit.

Just to be clear, no one in medicine would suggest that surgery is preferred if rest and rehabilitation resolve the problem. However, when the problem persists and surgery offers a means of improvement, it becomes the best option.

Wow, where has writing this good and knowledgeable been all my life.  Sure beats Joe Person writing about a tweet from Bill Voth.

I believe it was to tighten the ligaments

Hospital Medical Confidentiality laws be damned!!!

I need news about his ankle so fug Cam's privacy!

Is it private when you see a 6-6 muscle bound dude who happens to be one of the faces of the NFL in the hospital? Beans will be spilled.

In case you haven't noticed all young QBs tend to overthrow their targets (ex. Luck, Wilson, Brees, Peyton, etc) and typically QBs with cannons will always let 3-4 sail (Favre, Cutler, Stafford, Warner, etc) from time to time.

yes I noticed. It was a round about way of asking which ankle was worked on. I haven't paid attention because I was not worried about him. I hope its his lead foot so he can transfer his weight forward without fear of hurting it and really keep the ball from sometimes sailing. It will definitely make him more accurate.
