Lance Armstrong is recovering from surgery

Lance Armstrong is recovering from surgery on his collarbone today.

His manager, Mark Higgins, twittered to the masses, “Lance is in recovery.  Sam guy; just 12 screws in his collarbone.”

His surgeon, Dr. Doug Elenz, said that Lance was in a challenging surgery for three hours due to his collarbone being broken in four places.  The incident happened when Lance fell during the first stage of a race in Spain.

Shortly after the incident, Lance himself twittered, “I’m alive! Broken clavicle (right).  Hurts like hell for now.  Surgery in a couple of days.  Thanks for all the well wishes.”

Get well soon, Lance!  We all know he probably can’t wait to get back on his bike and ride.
