    Just a small correction - whoever is 2nd and 3rd at Russian Nationals will join Plushenko at Euros; whoever comes out on top there will go to Worlds. Russia usually uses Euros for selections, not Nationals, which IMO is much more sensible.

    :eek: That sounds scary. How often does Plushenko need to 'burn out his nerves'? I assume it's a minor op?

    I am not 100% sure it is THE surgery he undergoes this time. But I remember some people who studied medicine said this kind of operation has to be done every year if he really wants to block the pain (because the nerves will grow back).

    But really I am just guessing here......:p

    What am I going to say it in English? From some of articles, we can assume it can be called a nerve block. Doctors burn his back nerve. His nerve is destroyed temporarily (From several months to 1-2 years. The term is different with each person).

    I thought I replied kwanfan1818 yesterday but I couldn't find it :confused: Idek it was deleted or I failed posting, anyway, thank you again (sorry if I doubled). I forgot the youngest one :)

    Today I have read a Russian article. His coach was saying about two options. One is, as we talked, participation in a small competition. But neither GS nor D-S. He was talking a local competition Nikolai Panin Memorial. However it will be held from 11 to 14 December. Impossible, too.
    So, I think they will pick another option, to hold a private test skating with some specialists. :judge:

    One medical site said that normally one undergoing this procedure gets about 60 per cent relief and that relief lasts 6-9 months.
