  • Lonzo Ball will try to do what few have done before and return to the NBA after a cartilage transplant surgery. Is it likely his career is over or could it still be salvaged with this operation?

    Your channel is so informative and so spot on in almost every single situation. When you covered Damar Hamlin, you were the first to post a video and was very accurate as to what happened. Whoever has you for a doctor, they are very fortunate and should consider themselves lucky to have such a down to earth and well informed person such as yourself. If only you were in my area so I could be a patient as I have struggled with many surgeries in the last several years such as 3 Hip Replacements including 1 posterior, 2 lateral, a meniscus repair for a crescent tear, 2 double hernia surgeries with mesh replacement, an Achilles anchor due to a large bone spur that punctured it and had to be repaired as well. This was my last 6 years however the hip replacements all happened in 2016 in a 10 months span and the revision was due to a gap in the joint from the posterior in the ball part of the hip. My favorite channel as far as the medical channels I watch. I like to stay informed as best I can due to all my issues. Thanks so much for your content I learn so so much.

    Prayers up for the young man. IDC what you think of Him Lavar Melo Gelo this is a heartbreaking and profoundly sad story on every level. Lonzo worked his ENTIRE life for one singular purpose: to be a star basketball player. All that may be taken away in a flash not because of PEDs being a bust or criminality but because his own body simply failed him. Just as a human being that is such a tragic story. You work your ass off for so long only for it all to be stolen from you by your own body not holding up. If he is somehow able to play kudos otherwise I just want Lonzo to have a comfortable life where he’s not in pain. Throwing a ball into a hoop is great but in the end this is a person we’re talking about and life comes first.

    Definitely understand how he's feeling with his knee.. I've had several knee surgeries over the years, all on my right knee, while I was in the Army: ACL Repair, meniscus repair, another surgery where they went in and cleaned up the damaged stuff inside, a microfracture surgery, and an osteochondral allograft where they put in cadaver cartilage.. I'd say the worst one was the microfracture surgery, it was pretty painful for a while.. Now several years later my knee is still messed up and they said I will need a knee replacement, but I'm too young (35) so the VA won't do the surgery.. Seems like once you have one knee surgery you have to keep going back for more.. I couldn't imagine trying to play any kind of sports with how bad my knee was after these surgeries.. Also, I have some crazy pictures of inside my knee where they drilled the holes for the microfracture surgery. I wish I could share the pictures here.

    I hope Mr. Ball does well with this surgery.
    I had microfracture surgery on my right knee 34 years ago. I bashed it during the early days of mtn biking and I was only okay with the results. I had a weak spot and the pedal stroke was definitely affected. I also had to stop trail running for good, which was a big bummer. It swells internally once in a while and aches like hell for a few days. I can't let my leg get out of shape because it tracks wrong and aches. I lost a lot of power and speed on that operating table, and it's difficult to explain the psychological adaptation because at times all you want to do is quit and grab a handful of painkillers. I certainly have had to mentally push my way through a lot of that.
    Didn't stop me though. I am up over 200,000 miles since the surgery, with about a fourth of that gnarly mountain biking. (I also led two Divide expeditions) The activity didn't stop, it just changed form. I could train 24/7 and the limitation would still be there from a competitive standpoint. I sure would have liked to try a more modern approach to this surgery, but I consider myself fortunate to have lived in a time when these things are possible.

    I have a ton of respect for Lonzo. He came into the league with a ton of pressure to save a struggling franchise with insane fans (i'm a fan, so I know), people made fun of his jumpshot, his dad was all over TV being a HUGE distraction, had to deal with the jokes about his brother in China, and his mom had a health scare.
    There's a lot of talk about how young guys in the league are immature (cough JA cough)... well here you have Lonzo, a guy that kept his cool, stayed focused, and worked on his game. The way he carried himself through all of that is something we should all be proud of. It sucks that he might have a short career because of this because he worked himself into becoming one of the better 2-way players in the league.

      @ballguy1509 9 หลายเดือนก่อน

      The biggest disaster was rushing Lonzo Ball into surgery when he already had a bone bruise. How does a small meniscus tear surgery turn into a career ending injury when the doctor had a timeline of a 6 weeks recovery unless the surgery was botched. Having the surgery on top of a bone bruise resulted in nerve damage. That is the biggest disaster to date and the big elephant in the room that no one is talking about. This is not a Brandon Roy situation. This is a bad surgery. Both Brandon Roy's knees deteriorate from bones rubbing together and it was diagnosed as such. For Lonzo, doctors said his knee was structurally sound. So how do you go from this to end of career?

    I had an OCA of the right talus in the ankle. Ankle pain due to the OCA was basically eliminated. The remaining discomfort was due to soreness of some of the connectivity tissue that was injured in the past. Lonzo is certainly young enough where the allograft should "take" and not be absorbed by the body which is more likely to happen in patients older than 45 years. I hope to see Lonzo back on the court in 12-18 months.

  • @liamh8105

    This is super similar to what I had done to my ankle, had a broken talus with dead cartilage (talar dome osteochondral lesion). They screwed the bone back and micro fractures to the bone, and first surgery didn’t heal properly, but short term was great, second surgery was the same thing, just didn’t heal right. Now a few years later I have signs of arthritis, and I might have to get a bone graft. This video was great to watch cause I can really relate to this

    I think you meant Jordan Adams. I remember the Grizz were high on him, but he didn't seem to rise to those expectations. I guess that must've been why. It makes a lot more sense, since he wasn't exactly known to be a super-athletic leaper or speedster, that he just couldn't recover from injury instead of just being a bust. Sometimes it really only takes a fraction of lost mobility to derail a professional athlete's career.
