The Lounge>Alex Smith suffering serious complications.
Superturtle 09:52 AM 12-06-2018
[Bickel] Hearing from several different people over last few days that Alex Smith is having devastating complications from his broken leg surgery battling infection. Supposedly he's had multiple surgeries to try to combat infection. Chances of him playing again in real jeaopardy.


This fucking sucks.

That's what I was wondering. Like every single comment, LOL.

It was a compound fracture, which increases the likelihood of osteomyelitis, as well as the introduction of gram negative bugs. He's no doubt getting bombarded.

He probably has the world's worst diarrhea right now.

We had a family member die two days ago from this exact thing. Compound fracture, screwed back together, got infected and advanced into septic shock.

Humans are germ factories. There are more bacteria in and on your body than human cells.

Fuck WWE Gronk and his elbow drops in a cast.

That's too bad, Alex Smith is a good guy. At this point, i just hope that he can walk normally and live a relatively pain-free life. I think his career is done. :-)

In the dental field they've started working with different coatings for implants to try and reduce this. Usually dental follows medical so I'm guessing they're doing it there as well.

Either way, it's a long recovery.

Nope. And only 46 years old. Not a close family member and I don't know all the details. I can only assume that we wasn't paying close enough attention to the warning signs.

[Rapoport] More on #Redskins QB Alex Smith: He’s had several procedures, sources say, and @MikeGarafolo adds they are removing tissue to clear the infection. Smith still approaches this with optimism about playing. Note: His hospital room was next to Colt McCoy’s during McCoy’s 1-night stay

The infection gets into the blood, you are in real, don't fool around danger to your life. Even if your already in a hospital like Alex, its not a guarantee that you make it. But, I dont see anything, anywhere that he's septic yet.

Gram negative bacteremia can kill you in 12 hours.
