Evgeni Plushenko was operated in Israel
Figure skater Evgeni Plushenko made another surgery in Israel over the removal a hernia in the cervical (neck) part of spine. Details about the need for surgery told us Evgeni Plushenko and his Dr. Ilya Pekarski.
Plushenko: "During the medical examination conducted in an Israeli hospital, to me was discovered a hernia between the 6th and 7th cervical vertebrae. Hernia was pressing on a nerve, so almost did not work my the left hand, so I had to go on another operation. 4 days i drop out from my the normal schedule, then gradually i will begin to recover. The doctor immediately warned me that, at least, the next 5 months to me is not be allowed any jump. Everything else - in the training room, on the ice are not forbidden."
Two-time Olympic champion and Olympic medalist explained that he experienced the pain before.
"Because of the pain, I was forced to miss this season. At the shows i performed on the painkillers, while the last shows I barely managed to finish."
Evgeni also added that due to this problems he is forced to to cancel shows in Japan, China, Bulgaria and other countries. It is about 25 performances. His tour athlete plans to resume in the autumn, in September.
"I'm just not physically able to skate in the shows, because at begining I will have to wear a special collar. During this period, when is not allowed me to train in full force, I will continue to put the programs with directors of the Bolshoi Theatre, Sergei Filin and Yuri Posokhov. While there is time, it should be good use. In general, in the coming months, the main task is to recover, that nothing prevente to continue training. Well, I continue to look at the situation. My plans for a participation at the Olympic Games 2018, I do not change, I will continue to work"- said athlete.
The attending physician Ilya Pekarski said that for continuation of Plushenko's sports career this operation was necessary.
"After the examination, in Evgeni was detected a serious problem in the cervical region. There were two options. The first is to try without surgery with painkillers blockade and other procedures, but such treatment would take 2-3 years, and during all this period, Plushenko did not have to stand on skates. Actually, it would mean the end of his sports career. Two or three years is very long the term for an athlete, while for the person who gave to skating all his life, such a scenario was unacceptable. So, listen to me, Zhenya did not even consider this option.
Second option - the operation. That surgery is indicated and necessary, as an experienced specialist, I do not doubted. Because of problems in the cervical, to Zhenya weakened left arm. It is weaker, than to the average person. I graphically demonstrated it to Zhenya and his wife Yana. Even the woman's hand was stronger, because Zhenya felt his fingers badly. And for me - this is the main indication for surgery.
What's next? After surgery, within 6 weeks, Zhenya must to wear a special detachable collar. He can briefly removed it, but to sleep and move around he should always be with the collar, that not happen any recurrence. For 1,5-2 months skater can start swimming, work off-ice. About 3 months later he can go on the ice, skate. And only then, try to do jumps.
If Plushenko fulfill all the requirements, not force anything, for the six months he will be able to start a normal training. It is clear that during this period, the athlete must maintain a minimum form, to quickly adapt to the loads", - said Dr. Ilya Pekarski.
Operation of Evgeni Plushenko was made on Monday. At the moment, the state of the skater is satisfactory. For some time, the two-time Olympic champion will stay in Israel, and then proceed to recovery.
