Never had an appendectomy, what's the recovery time on something like that?

Found my own answer, says up to five days. Not so bad...

I just read up on the procedures and it can be up to 3 weeks for full recovery. It usually is less than that.

Oh and can we blame this on Lillibridge?

Matt Holiday had one after opening day last week. Said his return could be mid-May. Everyone heals differently. Hope Dunn heals quickly!

I read that there are different procedures that can be performed. The one performed on Dunn should allow him to be back no later than a couple of weeks.

OK...now what? I suppose this puts Teahen in the lineup at DH,so lets drop our dislike of the guy long enough to root for him to get off to a hot start,ok?

Too bad that Dayan is on the shelf.
Without Dunn's bat this lineup will be very righthanded and vulnerable to righty pitching. Do the Rays feature good rightys? I believe so.

I'm guessing Teahen DH's against righties and Quentin DH's against lefties -- with Milledge playing RF when Quentin DH's.

I'm not gonna freak out, as it's one of those bizarre things that just happens, but this really sucks for our lineup, and it also sucks that I'm not going to get to see him on Friday now.

aryzner

Really sucks for right now.

Does this give Milledge 2 starts the next two days?

Royals have LHP Jeff Francis today and Rays have David Price tomorrow. If I remember correctly, Milledge hits LHP pretty well. Stick Milledge in RF and DH Quentin?

Yes.

I think they have Dallas Braden next Monday too. Maybe 6 games--3 for Milledge. 3 for Teahen.

Obviously Teahen will DH...he better.

I'd rather see Milldege DH, as Carlos is better mentally when playing the field.

Also, Teahen haters need to drop it, we need the guy.

Besides, if everyone hates Teahen so much for his defense, then they should have zero issues with him as emergency DH.

Hopefully Big Dunn (as I call him ) can recover safely and quickly .
We do need his bat , but we need his recovery to go well
so he is healthy for his return !

Oh, for sure, when I think "what kind of hitter do I want as my back-up DH?", I immediately picture a guy who hit .258/.327/.709 and hasn't had a good year since 2006.

On the flip side, by making him DH, it means there's absolutely no way he can end up in the field, so maybe you're on to something.

Dealing with this in April is better than dealing with this in the middle of the season.

Everyone's recovery time, though, is different, depending on their mechanics and other circumstances. Andres Torres of the Giants last season, had an emergency appendectomy in September. He was supposed to be out 2-3 weeks, but he was only out for about 10 days. He wasn't the same after that offensively, but he also played hard defensively in center. His defense came back, but his offense didn't, even in the postseason. Forcing himself back into a pennant race in such an athletic position wasn't optimal. No one really knows if playing defense drained his offensive strength after he forced himself back into the pennant race or if he was just continuing a slump at the end of the breakout season.

All Dunn does is hit, which is probably to his advantage. He will have to get his timing back, though. If it's only a couple of weeks early in the season, the impact should be minimal.

It's probably going to be awhile before Dunn feels like his old self again. Hopefully you are correct and his absence will be as brief as possible.

Actually believe the procedure is termed a laparoscopy - or minimally invasive surgery. In many cases they can do standard surgical procedures this way, including removing kidneys (for example).

Hopefully they were able to do that with Dunn as it should greatly reduce the recovery time.

Yeah, my future sister-in-law had her appendix removed around October, no stitches, no scar, she was in the hospital for 1 day of observation and said she felt fine in 2-3 days.

I don't think recovery time translates to back in the lineup 100 percent. Pulled torso muscles can create problems for hitters.

During WWII, my grandmother, an Army nurse, worked with an Army surgeon who had developed and perfected a single-stitch, local-anesthetic appendectomy. He would make a tiny incision, use his pinkie finger to pull out the appendix, make the cut, stitch up the intestine, and then close the wound. If the procedure was performed in the morning, the patient generally could be back on duty (non-combat, home front) that afternoon.

Oy. We already have one Jake Peavy on this team, do we need another one?

I appreciate the determination, but it's frigging April 6th. It's not like we're in the thick of a playoff chase here.

I can't imagine that even with the advances in modern medicine, that there's a surgical procedure that allows someone to fully resume baseball activities in less than 48 hours.

Laparoscopically (Lap Appy). And the procedure doesnt take that long. It takes longer setting up for the procedure than the actual procedure does.

I like the quote. I'm sure Dunn doesn't mind playing less than 100%, but I'm sure Jerry, Kenny, and Ozzie mind very much, especially after what happened with Peavy.

I'm wondering why the Sox didn't put him on the 7 day DL instead of designating Milledge. If the earliest return was 5 days and Ozzie's policy is to always add one extra day that would have been the more logical move.
