Post-op infections are very common with this type of injury. All the best wishes in the world for a speedy recovery for Alex. I concur with what Vernon Davis had to say:

Tight end Vernon Davis, who also played with Smith on the San Francisco 49ers, said that he wasn’t worried about Smith’s long-term outlook, adding, “Alex is the most resilient man I’ve ever met.”
