Stig Broeckx Recovery Thread
« on: June 22, 2016, 11:44 »
I know that there exists an injury thread, a Lotto-Soudal thread but Stig's crash was too serious, he could have passed away and I think we should dedicate a whole thread for his recovery. Already told about in the shoutbox but I wished to mention that on the forum because I don't want Stiggetje to be forgotten.  :(

Last weekend, "Het Belang van Limburg" published an interesting article about Stig Broeckx's transfer to the East Limburg Hospital (ZOL) of Genk at his family's and team doc's request while he was initially scheduled to be trasnferred to a hospital in Leuven. The team seemed to already have had positive experience with the ZOL. The ZOL is known in all Belgium for their innovative and sound work, one of the biggest non-university hospital and they have more than 45 years experience in brain traumatology, the first hospital in Belgian Limburg with a neurosurgery unit.

(Het Belang van Limburg of last Monday, I think)





He's still in induced coma and in intensive care, cared for by a team of intensivists and neurosurgeon.  It seems that there's no immediate risks for his life at this moment but the neurological consequences for the rest of his life are hard to determine. The surgery at his eye orbit was succesful too.

    Tim Wellens still has hope.

    From today's Belang van Limburg :



    Quote
    On Saturday we got in group a medical update about Stig's situation after which we were all overwhelmed [edit: Thanks Slow Rider] and depressed on our chair. Just after we had the tactical discussion which was really a hard transition. But therefore everyone of us came even more motivated at the start. Not just here in Belgium but also in Germany where André took the title and in France where Tony also came second. Hopefully we've given Stig some additional strength so that it eventually comes good with him.

    Wishful thinking perhaps but what else can he say?  :(

    He's in the right mindset. In a case like this, never lose hope - the human body is an amazing thing.

    But, while it's not impossible, the chances of Broeckx waking up again from his coma are slim to none. The chances of him not having suffered severe brain damage are as good as non-existant.

    It's sad. :'(

    Still the Belang...

    Sergeant knew about Stig's situation since last Wednesday. It means that the day I started that thread, his situation had already worsened.  :(

    He didn't inform his riders until Saturday in order to share the news only when the whole team (riders + staff) were present.

    He remembers a big silence, something he never experienced. Tears flew, heads were low, ... and said that the riders realised that the chances to a positive outcome were extremely low.


    It's so exasperating to think we are not gonna this wonderful smile anymore ...

    I had a bad presentiment last Friday.

    I had this article about Lieuwe Westra being too depressed to race at the moment because of Stig's situation: http://www.hln.be/hln/nl/952/Wielrennen/article/detail/2759413/2016/06/22/Diep-in-de-put-na-crash-Stig-Broeckx-Wie-gaat-mij-vinden-als-ik-ergens-van-mijn-fiets-donder.dhtml

    He's not 100% focused on racing at the moment and pulled out of both Dutch Nats. He had already retired from the Tour of Belgium. I don't remember if he was involved in the crash

    But there was no news report that his situation had deteriorating.

    The cafe owner of his Fan Club in Dessel still has hope though she realises that the situation is worrying. Everybody seems deeply affected and few supporters went to the Nationals. http://www.gva.be/cnt/dmf20160627_02358371/we-beseffen-dat-het-zorgwekkend-is

    Mods, I have a request to make. If ever we have the news report of a fatal outcome for Stig, I don't want the thread headline be changed into a memorial thread as is sometimes done on other forums. This is a thread about his recover and it was started when there was still hope (and still there is!), it should remain so. I don't have the heart for a memorial thread. Posters would still be free to share their sadness though I'd rather any such reaction be moved to the memorial announcement thread, for example. Hopefully this won't be an issue but we have to consider the possibility.

    Thanks for your comprehension.

    Stig's fanclub has extended the "Fight for Stig" campaign initiated by Lotto-Soudal, selling some "Fight for Stig" wristbands for 2€, possible benefit should support Stig's relatives. First thousand bands sold rapidly via local point of sales in the Horeca sector. 3,000 extra bands have been ordered and a webshop exists as well.  :)

    Thanks Killswitch.  :cool

    This morning I found this article in the Belang van Limburg:



    They confirmed that he's been transferred to a rehab centre in Overpelt, specialised in measuring brain activity and carrying out testing on patients in deep coma. they confirm he's not in life-threatening danger but they claim his situation remains unchanged and is not likely to do so in a near future.  :(


    They don't seem aware of this info: "His condition has improved slightly. He is, according to specialists, in a minimally conscious state." I'd like to believe the CN article.  ;)

    Stig has shown signs of improvement for about a month now.

    Sergeant went to see him on 29 September. It was his girlfriend's birthday. Tilly asked him "Stig show us what ou can". He thereafter blinked his eyes, try as hard as he could to put the thumb up and then to pinch in Marc's arm.

    "These are small but meaningful signs of improvement but we don't know where it will stop but let's hope it can be much better. It's worth keeping the support for his family and gf. Fight for Stig"

    Het Laatste Nieuws is the only newspaper to give news of Stig this morning in the Dutch-Speaking part. The news even was front page.



    "Our Son Recognises Us Again"

    Stig can react again to stimuli, say his parents:

    Quote
    Via his eyes and his hands, he can answer to short questions and the most beautiful of it all: he can again smile a little bit

     :)




    "This Smile of His is What We Miss the Most"

    Stig's parents run a farm.

    His father Peter says:

    Quote
    Since he has been transferred to the revalidation center in Overpelt he's gradually gone out of his vegetative situation and a bit of consciousness came back. Until 2 months ago Stig litterally reacted to nothing. He simply was ... a sleeping boy in his bed who did not show any sign of life. But the doctors said: "If consciousness comes back, you as the closest family will be the first to notice it."

    His mother :

    Quote
    The first hope-giving signs we saw in Stig's eyes. One day we realised that his dim coma eyes changed into searching eyes wherein ou had glance again and he can express himself again with his eyes. Closing the eyes once is a "yes", twice is a "no". Another means of communication that they taught him in the revalidation centre is with his right arm. in the meantime he can also move and control it. That way he can put his thumb to say okay and make a fist if something is not okay.

    Quote
    And though these action are slow, at least they are there. It's still unclear what Stig understand from what we all say but he can answer small questions with his eyes and arm and we already see emotions again. Stig cannot use all his facial muscles again but when he's happy we see an attempt to a smile in him. We are so happy about that. Because Stig was known for his smile. This smile of his is what I miss the most. Though he cannot speak yet we have learnt his body language. When in his room Stig points to a photograph of Stien, the 1.5 year old daughter of his sister with a finger of his right arm, then we know that he's asking about this child. Then we take his eye call the other day with us for a visit and we se that he's happy. We also notice this happiness when he sees his girlfriend Tilly. The way he the looks is special. We are full of admiration for our daughter-in-law because she so unconditionally keeps believing in recovery, never loses courage and visits him on a daily basis. How hard it sometimes is for her. She's a fantastic madame and already almost 5 years a perfect match for our Stig.

    Neither do father and mother Broeckx miss a visit. His father: 
    Quote
    Our days are fully organised around that visit. If there's too much work in the farm, Marie-An [the mother] goes there first and I join her later on but we must have seen him every day. Our two other sons and our daughter visit him whenever they can. We need it all as family. We ry to look as normal as possible with Stig. [Part I cannot translate] We tell him about daily things. About the farm home, about the rest of the family, about Stientje. These are enough incentive to work up. Too many incentives quickly brings chaos in his mind and he then gets uneasy. So we try to avoid that. [...] The therapy that he follows whole day long is already exhausting enough for him and he needs his rest.

    His mother:
    Quote
    Stig really needs to learn everything again with his therapy and it's true, the small things that he already does again are keeping us up. Absolutely! But they don't put insecurity away. Because his situation till this very day remains serious. It remains a fact that our son is not mobile again yet, cannot yet fully express himself, is dependent on everything and needs care for everything. I fear the day Stig realises where he's landed in. It does not constantly goes in a progressive line with him either. In recent months, Stig has had three pneumonias and he got so weak from them that for weeks he showed no signs of improvement.

    The father:
    Quote
    Stig and only Stig defines the rhythm. of course we hope that it will turn out as best as possible but we don't know what we may expect and we don't even ask the doctors about it. It doesn't even make any sense. We don't even think about what he'll be able to do or not in the future. We can't hope about things that might never come back. We are taking days as they come, are happy with the little signs of improvement, we don't give up and most of all try to stay positive.

    The mother:
    Quote
    And of course, we feel impotence for what has been taken away from Stig for whatever the future brings it will never be the same again. There'll always be a "before" and an "after". But resentment doesn't solve anything. Neither does anger. Nor complaining. After the crash we've learnt not to go growling about things you anyway cannot change. Bad weather? bad milk prices? We don't worry about all that anymore. Plus we realise very well that some people have had even worse experiences than we have as family.

    The father:
    Quote
    Only now we notice the boards about killed children alongside the road. We didn't think about them before. With Stig's crash we realise that there's a name on it. We realise: "That's the name of somebody's child." We now understand the plight of these people better and that that is so much worse than when you still have your child.

    « Reply #24 on: October 29, 2016, 14:57 »
    A few months ago I stumbled on an article about Stig’s agrarian background. I’ve always been fascinated by agriculture and wished I had any know-how of how to run a farm. I didn’t know at all that Stig was a farm boy when I started this thread and it’s really a coincidence if I got to read that old article, I wasn’t at all seeking info about his biography or so, I only was interested in agriculture and cycling and Stig happened to be one of the few remaining cyclists coming from the land, just like we also have Yves Lampaert here in Belgium. I didn’t wish to post this earlier because I didn’t wish to make you believe that I had news about his situation at that time while I had no info at all. Right now, I think I may share it.

    https://www.nationale-loterij.be/nl/winnen-en-delen/2015/05/l-autre-reve-de-stig-broeckx

    It’s an article from last year, must be around the start of the off-season

    As a young kid he spent 24 hours with a calf. Literally, read one day and one night in a calf box in his parents’ farm.
    Quote
    My brother defied me. I had to prove myself, didn’t I? In my parents’ farm I had all the time of my life. I stood whole days among animals, and then mostly among cows.

    This kind of treks illustrate very well that as a child he already had a lot of mental toughness. That is useful to him today as a pro rider. Being a rider is by the way a dream come true for the 25 year old Campiner, though it wasn’t actually his first child dream. He only knew at age 18 that he would choose for the pro career.

    Quote
    At secondary school I did maths-science. I’ve long thought I’d become a veterinary surgeon but then it seemed that I still could race a bit with the bike and I changed this particularly hard and long study for the somewhat lighter programme as industrial agricultural engineer.

    It’s of course just what you call ‘light’ but this toughness comes again on top. In the meantime Broeckx is busy with his second year as a full time pro rider. However the dreams of the old days haven’t fully gone yet …

    Quote
    Becoming a veterinary surgeon after my career is no longer possible but I’m still interested in agriculture. Maybe I can follow the example of Wim Vansevenant, the former Lotto rider who also got to the agrarian sector after his cycling career by taking over the family  farm. I’m personally in competition with my brothers and sister. Who knows they might also be candidates? Well the future will show what comes out of it but as of now, I still would like to give it all on the bike for YEARS.

    He said this, as always, with big smile. :)

    http://wielerverhaal.com/landbouwers-in-de-koers-vallen-opstaan-en-oogsten/

    This page names a few recent farming cyclists and includes Stig, Yves Lampaert, Wim Vansevenant, Lucho Herrera and the late Igor Decraene.

    The chapter about Stig goes:

    The good-smiling Stig Broeckx of Dessel is a year older than Lampaert. He also came to the spotlight for the first time in a major classic when he chose for a long-range attack at the 2014 Tour of Flanders. 25 year old Stig Broeckx comes from a farming family and even completed his study as engineer in bio-science. He used to regularly help on the farm but at present he more often chooses for rest on the sofa, as he says himself. He considers Stijn Vandenbergh as an example, which says a lot about his skills. Broeckx isn’t fast but can account for a surprise in the shadows of Roelandts and co. The Antwerper is a grateful guy who enjoys racing. This pleasure he also shines out and thereby makes himself very popular. Last year his season was cut short due to a crash at the Tour of Italy but this year he’s again expected in the Lotto spring team.

    Stig made a promotional clip for the 2014 “Dag van de Landbouw”, big farming events held in several towns in the Dutch-speaking part of Belgium. He says at the end:
    Quote
    On the bike I’m rather fast but how fast have I milked this liter milk?



    http://lottosoudal.be/het-tussenseizoen/

    Here several Lotto-Soudal riders explained what they are doing in their off season (2015/2016).

    Stig basically said that after a holiday he was building up form, he liked diversifying sports: swimming, running, mountainbiking, squash, etc. He uses geocaching, an app on his smartphone to go and fetch “treasures”, the child in him comes to the front when he is geocaching.

    And also:

    Quote
    Mid-October is traditionally the month to harvest maize and work is full on my parents farm. During that week the whole family is mobilized to help. Since my season is over I also help along. During the cycling season I’m less active on the farm, that’s why I find it pleasant to help again.

    Mid October 2016 is gone now. This year Stig obviously couldn’t help. I think we all agree that what matters is now is that Stig recovers full consciousness, mobility and speech and we shouldn’t yet think of a possible return to competition in the future. But my biggest wish is that he still recovers all his strength in order for him to fulfill his dream of taking over his parents’ farm and work the land. :) Cycling, oh well …

    Landmark day for both Stig and the family.

    :)
    That's great news and if I'm honest, news that I had stopped expecting to see.

    At his last visit to Stig, Kris Boeckmans played rock-paper-scissors with him.  :)

    He has visited him six times since the terrible mishap. The first time he was shocked but the last time he was surprisingly happy with his progress. He also claimed that the crash had a deep impact on the team and was one of the reason why their results in the second half of the season were a bit lesser, though he does not wish to be stuck in the past.

    (Herman Frison didn't really evoke Stig's crash as a reason for the lack of good results by the team in the second part of the season though).

    On another note, I don't know if said elsewhere but Pieter Jacobs who was involved in the crash and also severely injured considers retiring.
