Kenya 7s international Oscar Dennis had an operation on Wednesday in Cape Town, South Africa to begin treatment on his left leg after a hit and run accident that left him seriously injured last week in Nairobi.
Dennis says "they had to clean the wounds out again and fixed all the bones and toes in my feet that were broken. So we fixed them up with wire. My ankle is being held together by a device."
Dennis is set for another operation on Friday that he says "they want to skin graft the two flesh wounds. Then I will have two weeks off surgery to recover and then they will put that external fixator on."
No timescale is put on Dennis' return to action for now. "I have no idea when I'll return to playing. Doctors said take it a day as it comes. Just got to wait and see how external fixator reacts and we can go from there."
The Nondies star required medevac last week for further treatment after two days at Aga Khan hospital in Nairobi. Dennis was on his bike at the junction of Bogani road and Quarry Lane in Karen, Nairobi when he was hit by a car with Kenya Rugby Union(KRU) saying the accident resulted in a seriously damaged leg.
