Lilian Garcia Talks About How She Suffered an Injury
As noted earlier, WWE ring announcer Lilian Garcia underwent surgery on April 10th to repair a torn meniscus in her right knee. It was estimated that she will be out for five weeks before she’s able to resume her duties for WWE.
Garcia sustained the injury last November while on tour with WWE overseas.
“It was one of those crazy things where I was just packing, I got up and I felt the knee [go],” Garcia told WWE.com. “I felt it right away, I told [WWE officials] about it and [they] said, ‘Let’s keep an eye on it.'”
Rather than risk further injury, Garcia skipped WWE’s current tour of Europe and underwent surgery at the advice of WWE physician Dr. Chris Amann.
“Surgery went great,” Garcia said. “I am actually kind of ahead of schedule, which is great.”
Garcia has been keeping fans up to date on her recovery through Twitter, which includes two to three sessions per week with a physical therapist, as well as additional exercises at home.
