Do we still not know who performed Luck's surgery?

Dr. Nick.

 

Or this guy...
 

 

Lots of comics could say funny things.

He just said things funny.

 

I saw him on with Johnny Carson just once when he wasn't in character...He seemed a very articulate almost shy man.

He just said that nobody thought his 'straight' act was that funny but everybody loved his drunk act

I used to love watching him on the Dean Martin roast shows. Him and Ruth Buzzy.

If so, how has the media allowed this?

 

Oh, Dear God....

 

We don't know because we're not entitled to know.    No one is required to give out such information.   And if someone gave you a name today,  what would you do with it?

 

What would it tell you?   

 

You think the surgery was botched?   How would you prove it?    Luck found a specialist and had the operation.   It's his personal business.    

 

Sorry...   there's no THERE there.

 

Now if we wake up someday to learn that Luck is suing the doctor THEN you have a story.    But not until then.    That's how this works.

When a high profile athlete has surgery, the doctor is usually named. The guy I posted thought it was fishy as well.

Yes...   often the information is released... but not always.     It's a case by case basis.

 

I don't know why it wasn't given out in this case,  but it wasn't.    I accept that at face value because there's no reason not too.

 

The link you provided doesn't tell you much.    A blank look on a persons face may or may not say the person doesn't know.    It may say he knows but can't say.

 

There are HIPPA laws in effect.   That makes it illegal to release that kind of info without Luck's approval.

 

And again,  if Luck released the name tomorrow, what would you do with it?

I been keeping it a secret way too long now!!  I did it. Me and Ballard thought we could save Jim some money on his insurance premiums.  hahahaha

 

Don't lie, we all know it was Dr. Kevorkian.  Luck wanted put out of his misery and not have to suffer another season under Pagano and Co.

To the OP's point, it is kind of hard to make that argument if we don't know who performed the surgery. 

 

I am not sure why everyone is beating up the OP for asking this question. In the football world we live in, it seems to be a fair question to me.

It's a fair question to ask.

 

The OP is suggesting that because we don't know the answer, it means something is wrong. It's also suggesting that the media has failed in not finding out the answer.

 

I have a problem with that from several angles, but most obvious, a) we have the right to ask, but we are not entitled to the answer, and b) whoever did the surgery, there's no indication that anything went wrong. Asking a question and then insinuating that the absence of a clear answer is proof of a bigger issue is disingenuous and unfair, IMO.

I am not saying the OP has a sound conspiracy theory, but asking who the doctor was; that's a legitimate question.

There was a local doctor that suggested it on Twitter last week that a couple of local media guys picked up but I think most don’t feel there is any evidence to back it up yet.  I know I don’t think there is.

It doesn't matter.  Many thought it would be nearly a year before he recovered fully, and it is turning out to be more true by the day.  High expectations somehow got in the way.

IMO this is more than likely true. I am not a doctor by no means but everyone who has surgery has different healing time frames.

I say this after my personal surgeries and knowing a few others who has had basically the same and we all had different times in healing. Some never healed completely while some healed and seemed to have no ill effects.

With that said maybe Ballard trading for Bissett when the opportunity become available was to cover all the bases as far as Luck's injury was concerned?

All those who are talking trading Bissett may be too premature in those thoughts because we just are not positive if Luck we ever be 100% the QB he was before getting injured. When Ballard made the statement Brissett was traded for the future may be truer than we anticipated.

Yeah that could happen.  Luck may never be fully recovered.  But I suspect the fact that he was at least throwing 40 yard passes indicates to me that he will eventually be OK.  The fact that he got sore after not having done that for so long is, to me, perfectly normal.  I am not a doctor either, but I work in healthcare and know enough to know that is to be expected.  It will likely take some time before he is not sore anymore, whenever he starts throwing again.  Luckily, they don't have to decide on Brissett for another 6 months or so.  By then, they should have a better handle on Luck's long-term prognosis.

    • I'm not calling it a death sentence. I'm saying typical recovery doesn't put Fisher back on the field in September.   KD didn't play for 18 months. Mack hasn't returned yet. I don't see anything new out there that suggests that any high level athletes are returning after a ruptured Achilles in a shorter time frame than they did over the past decade. 
    • Will you stop with your reasonably stated posts taking us through the logic of your posting without containing at least one personal shot?    Question would you have been happier, or at least understood more, a 2 year deal? Let's say for sake of ease circa 18 Mil.
    • Part of it is about this specific off-season with the all the depressed market and much less money available than previously expected. On one side - teams don't have the money to give and on the other hand players prefer to take one year deals and wait for the market to normalize next year and test FA with more teams willing to give them more lucrative deals.    On a Ballard-specific note - he doesn't like giving long-term money for pieces that are not key building blocks of this team. Even when he's given 3 year deals in the past, most of them have had an out after year 1 with little or no dead money on the cap if we choose to cut the player.    The one year deals have another plus too - they turn into potential compensatory picks if they perform and we are unable to re-sign them.   
    • I think this all goes without saying. The team and their medical people are aware of the details, and that influences their level of confidence in this decision. I'm just a guy on the Internet.   But I stated my opinion on Fisher and Dayo last week. The research says it's an 11 month recovery, on average. Outliers are 9 months. For Fisher to play in September, he'd be an outlier. No one bets on outliers without acknowledging the risk they're taking. If Fisher's recovery is typical, he probably won't play until December. And if he has a setback, he might not play this season at all.    One last thing, not necessarily directed at your post, is that last week I was accused in no uncertain terms of being a Ballard bootlicker who never disagrees with anything the team does. Today, I'm voicing my disagreement with this move, based on typical recovery for players with this injury, and every response is 'the team knows what they're doing.' Kind of ironic, IMO.
