From the appropriately named OsteitisPubis22 on our board.

This is totally f’ed for JD, beyond just footy.

No it is not standard procedure.

For those considered as Elite athletes, surgeons recommend at least 12-15 months of non- operative treatment before surgery is considered.

Of all cases where osteitis pubis has occurred, it is believed that only between 5-10% of sufferers will require surgery.

OP is where there is an instability of pubic symphysis. To dumb that down, that’s when the pubic area of the pelvis is shifting further apart from one another. The ligaments holding each side of the pelvis together are stretching further and further apart.causing the pelvis to tilt and leaving the athlete with extreme discomfort.

The surgery required is essentially where a plate is screwed in, connecting the inlaid tricortical Iliac crest bones to each other (picture attached below).

The major reason surgeons prefer not to go straight to surgery is because in the possible case in infection, hemospermia can occur (ejaculating blood) leading to an inability to produce sperm and therefore becoming unable to reproduce. As well as scrotal Swelling leading to testicular diseases.

Why would anyone risk that when there is a very high success rate (90-95%) of non-operative treatments.

Joe is out of contract at the end of next season. He'd be really wanting him and the club to get it right so he can put in another season like 2017. There is the potential there for this latest set-back to cost him millions.

What a bummer. No-one wins when the good players are out injured long term. I hope that he can come good and produce the career that all bomber fans have been hoping for.

Put him out to pasture and make sure hes right to go for next year - the game needs stars like this fully fit and firing - thats 2 years gone now..

Essendon have shown how NOT to run a football club in recent years. Their medical and fitness staff need a good kick up the backside

We are a meh side even with a full list. Cant afford to lose players like JD. Hopefully this doesnt become a career limiting injury

It's super frustrating because I feel we have a backline and midfield that can match it with the best we just cant find a healthy forward 6 and the right game plan to have it click.

He's potentially a game changer for Essendon. Just can't get up

Came hooker is elite but having Daniher up forward means he can play back and it makes Essendon backline so much stronger. That and after Hurley Daniher/Hooker the quality of Essendon bigs dries up. McKernan and Clarke are not AFL standard. Wouldnt say season over because Stringer has captured some old form back so honestly still a chance to make finals

But a huge blow for Daniher and his career. This will be another season he has to sit out. Which is the 2nd or third. He should be hitting his prime however just can't get his body right which is worrying

People outside the club and the medicos don't know if he was handled correctly or incorrectly. Everyone's body is different and some people's bodies can just fall apart even if everything was done perfectly.

McKernan is certainly AFL standard, has been huge for us every time he’s been on the park this year and last.

Clarke, I couldn’t agree more.

Terrible news, Joe is one of the most fun player's and one of the sadly few character's we have in the league

As much as I dislike Essendon, the league is the poorer for his absence.
