Is Dean Ambrose Injured?
During Monday Night Raw on December 18, 2017, Ambrose had an on-screen injury that sources say was a set up to cover an injury he suffered beforehand.
After his arm was heavily strapped during a tag team match, it only worsened after his backstage attack angle with Samoa Joe.
Dean Ambrose’s Surgery
Since Ambrose tore his tricep, he had to undergo surgery to repair the tendons that split from the bone. His operation was successful, performed by Dr. Jeffrey Dugas in Birmingham, Atlanta.
Dr. Dugas said, “He tore some of the distal triceps tendon where it attaches to the forearm bone, called the olecranon. He basically tore about 50% of the triceps tendon away from the bone. So yesterday we repaired that back down to the bone where it tore off of. The surgery was very straightforward; we removed all of the extra bursal tissue —all of that extra swollen stuff around his elbow.”
His doctor explained that Ambrose already started physical therapy to recover faster.
When Will Dean Ambrose Return?
Sources claim that Ambrose will not be back before September 2018, since he was advised to take nine months off to recover.
Although we want him back in the ring sooner, we are just happy that he is taking the time to heal!
