In a post on his official Twitter account, former PROGRESS World Champion Cara Noir provided an update on his injuries suffered back in April, noting that he won’t know whether he will be able to return to wrestling for another 12 months.

Noir noted previously that he wrestled for 20 minutes on three fractures at the PROGRESS Chapter 151 event back in April, suffering an intra-articular fracture to the cuboid, a chip on the calcaneus, a chip on the navicular and also had a spot of traumatic arthritis on the talus and ligament damage.

The post reads, “Today, I met with specialist orthopaedic foot surgeon, Mr. Nima Hiedari. He was very direct with me, which was extremely helpful, but I’m also slightly struggling to process his diagnosis. He told me I have sustained a devastating injury to my mid foot. I have four fractures and a number of bone chips, which were caused through a major dislocation to the cuboid bone. Mr. Hiedari suspects he’ll be able to operate in the next two weeks, but the prognosis is not great, it will be 3 months before I can weight-bare again, and a year to get back to loaded dynamic movements. It will not be clear for another 12 months if I’ll be able to return to wrestling or not. Mr. Hiedari is now consulting with an expert radiologist, and his surgical partner, to make a plan for my surgery, I should know more next week regarding a surgery schedule. I’m obviously devastated, but again, I’m extremely grateful to you all for your support. For context, Mr. Hiedari was formerly head of orthopaedics at the Royal London hospital, the hospital that originally misdiagnosed my injury in A&E, and where I’ve struggled to get appropriate treatment for the past 14 weeks. Mr. Hiedari no longer works at ROyal London due to the difficult conditions the NHS is currently experiencing, so your support is a massive lifeline at a time when there would be little hope of a return to wrestling for me if I was at the mercy of the NHS.”
