Now Mark Sanchez’s patella will remain in place. The rest of Mark Sanchez will continue to roam free, like a wild stallion.
The tendon is expected to heal completely, and be incredibly handsome.
When does the surgery ever go poorly? And if it did, would the doctor tell us so?
I don’t know if this is actually a result of unsuccessful surgery or an issue in care after the surgery but staph infections? I know that’s what happened to LeCharles Bentely and pretty much destroyed his career.
