Chris Tiu posts photos before and after nasty elbow incident

 

The Rain or Shine guard and Happy Lemon part-owner only needed seven days to heal from a concussion.

Chris Tiu took to Ig to post a remembrance of his bloody injury that caused a one-second blackout inside the court.

“I decided to post this on my main feed for remembrance. The left photo was the night of the accident & right photo was 7 days after.
The accident happened 12 days ago on May 20 in a PBA game. It was the hardest hit on the face I’ve ever experienced causing a 1 second blackout. My doctor, who is a plastic surgeon, said that my tooth ripped through my lip muscle so deep that only the skin was left. They said the impact was so strong and that I was really lucky because there could have been worse complications with the brain & face. He did such a good job stitching me up w/ minimal pain during and after.
My guardian angels were surely watching over me!
I also realized later that I should not have been allowed to return to play right away since there should have been a concussion protocol. I guess this is a lesson for myself, the league and for other athletes.
Again, I’d like to thank all those who were sending messages of support and for your prayers! And also to my amazing doctors and PTs who made me look fresh again (and whiter! Haha you know who you are ) 😄,” said @chris_tiu17.
