Game under the knife
Triple H emerged from quadriceps surgery at approximately 7:30 p.m. yesterday in Birmingham, Ala. Dr. James Andrews reports that the surgery went well with no complications.
The operation confirmed that the quadriceps tendon was completely torn off the bone and kneecap in his right leg, but was otherwise in good condition. The tendon was reattached to the patella.
The Cerebral Assassin was said to be in good spirits all day and looking forward to the recovery process. He told many that he was not nervous about the surgery because he was confident in Dr. Andrews' abilities.
According to Dr. Andrews, Triple H will need four to six months of recovery before returning to in-ring action. He will begin rehabilitation immediately in Alabama for the next three weeks before he returns home to continue with his physical therapy. The current prognosis is that The Game should be walking again in six weeks.
