Further details regarding Michael van Gerwen's medical condition were disclosed by his close friend, Vincent van der Voort, in an interview with 433 Darts. According to him,
He underestimated the after effects and is in a lot of pain. They are pretty intense procedures. Michael now also has a lot of stitches in his mouth. On top of that now comes braces, today he is back in the hospital. Those braces are tightened every few days. That too is anything but fun.
Later, when Michael van Gerwen returned to the circuit at the European Darts Matchplay, the world number three was defeated by Raymond van Barneveld in his first encounter. At the time, his close friend explained,
You could tell from everything that he was not himself. In the practice room you normally always hear him talking. Now he was very quiet. You know, in his teeth it's all crooked. There are eight millimeters between his front teeth. That looks really weird. He's ashamed of that, too.
Likely, Van der Voort added,
He doesn't feel comfortable with the situation. During the match, he kept his mouth shut continuously. We all hope he will be back to his old self soon. But this is not solved within a few days.
However, comparing Michael van Gerwen's before and after appearances, he seems to be better. We hope he will soon be fully recovered as well as improve his game. Furthermore, we wish him good luck in the coming days.
