AEW wrestler Fuego Del Sol has said that a recent foot injury was worse than originally thought, involving five fractures.
He suffered the injury on Sunday, 19th February at the SPW Haters Gonna Hate show.
In the following days, he said he had suffered a dislocation and a “small fracture.”
On Wednesday, he took to social media to reveal the full extent of his injury.
He stated that his right foot had been fractured in five different places, adding that he is to see a specialist to determine whether surgery is required.
Depending on the need for surgery, his recovery time may be between six weeks and three months.
He gave the update in a series of tweets and on Instagram:
With the original x-rays, last week after they confirmed the dislocation of my right foot, they believed I only had one minor fracture.
After the CT scan upon further examination, today they determined I actually fractured my foot in 5 DIFFERENT PLACES, the doctor told me that the fact I finished the match was unbelievable. Adrenaline is a hell of a drug!
Now let’s talk about the big thing, ligament damage. The orthopedic said the main ligament around my Lisfranc bone is a little displaced but not completely separated. So now I have to go see a foot specialist to determine if it needs surgery or if it can heal on its own. If it can heal on its own the recovery is 6-8 weeks because all my bones are in the right spots and the fractures just need time to heal, BUT if I need surgery it could be 3 months. So expect another update within the next week, I’m hoping for the best.
Not the news we wanted. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a little frustrated. Focusing on my recovery and advancing my non-physical ventures like, twitch, YouTube, tiktok, IG and content of the likes to keep me busy and my mind off this. Any love and support sent my way is appreciated immensely!
