Just under one week ago we ran an injury update article on Ken Roczen’s badly injured arm. At the time Roczen revealed he had one more surgery to go and he would be done.

Of course, the recovery road would still be long but there was some light at the end of the tunnel for the German. But another social media post from Roczen last night reminded us all that no matter how good your medical care is, recovery from injury doesn’t always go to plan.

And by the tone of his post, he’s frustrated and understandably in a lot of pain. “Went in for surgery #8 yesterday and the pain afterwards was absolutely miserable that anybody that looked at me I wanted to punch in the face, even my woman,” he wrote on Instagram. “Lol (sarcastically) Doc said it was a very difficult and challenging surgery because everything was so damaged. ( I never half ass things) haha and couldn’t get it all done at once:-(

But as much as he’s having to deal with a lot of pain and the mental challenge of recovery, you can clearly see he remains strong. “Again, I believe in what he [surgeon] does and to be able to come back good. I’d rather follow his lead and take our time. Having another surgery on Wednesday and I hope that’ll be it. Might have to keep the exfix in for a few weeks and will have to get that taken out later too.  #gritforglory Period. You can throw as many rocks in my way as you want. My dad didn’t raise a pu*sy to the injury.”

Keep it locked to Dirt Bike Rider and we’ll update when we get more.
