Adrianne HasletUndergoes 8-Hour Surgery... Running Future In Jeopardy
1/8/2019 4:20 PM PT
Adrianne Haslet -- who lost her left leg in the '13 Boston Marathon bombing -- is recovering after undergoing an 8-hour surgery to rebuild her left side after being hit by a car on Saturday.
As we previously reported, Haslet -- who's been training for the 2019 Boston Marathon -- was hit while crossing the street around 7:15 PM by a driver making a left turn.
Haslet has undergone multiple procedures -- and says she's still pretty groggy after a major operation on Monday, where doctors "put in a bunch of metal plates and screws trying to rebuild ... because my entire left side was shattered."
She hasn't gone into specifics about her injuries -- but, obviously, it's bad.
Haslet says she's not certain if she'll be able to run again -- and admits she's too afraid to ask the doctors for a prognosis.
That said ... if there's anyone who's tough enough to bounce back from this tragedy -- it's Adrianne.
Remember, back in 2016 ... after she was fitted with a prosthetic leg, Haslet decided she was going to complete the Boston Marathon to prove as a way of turning tragedy into triumph.
