Kubica making good progress

Robert Kubica continues to make good progress as he recovers from serious injuries sustained in a rally accident in Italy earlier this month. Kubica left intensive care last week, a few days after undergoing his third operation to treat serious injuries to his arm. The Polish driver has now started his rehabilitation. In a press release from the Lotus Renault GP team quoted Dr Igor Rossello as saying that Kubica is making good progress, both physically and mentally. “I saw him this morning around 8:30am. He is doing pretty well and his condition is positive considering what he has been through.” Said Dr Rossello “The good news is that there have been no complications following all the surgery he has had recently.” Dr Rossello continued adding that the recent surgery he had performed on Kubica’s hand seems to be healing well. “He can move his fingers slightly and has a little bit of sensitivity already in his hand. What is very important is that there is no sign of infection, which is the main concern.” “He has begun the rehabilitation process. He is now in his own large room so that he is as comfortable as possible. He has already started some gentle hand exercises with the slight flexing of his fingers.” “He’s no longer in pain and his psychological condition is pretty good. He’s obviously keen to start the rehabilitation work as soon as possible.” Although, Dr Rossello wasn’t able to say an exact time span of how long he will spend in the rehabilitation department, but he believes it will be “for the next couple of weeks,” so that they able to monitor his condition, as during this time “there is still the possibility of infection and other complications so he will have the dressings on his hand changed every few days.” Added Rossello “After two weeks we will assess his next move.”
