Over the weekend, the 162cm libero has released this statement:
“I wanted to take stock of the situation because the last tests have diagnosed a problem more serious than expected, I will have to undergo another surgery that I will postpone my situation because untreated can have serious consequences in my life private.
I’ll do a stem cell transplant and I have to stop for a year. I wanted to be the one to tell you this because we do not want to be misunderstood on this thing. My pathology is a osteonecrosis of fourth level which is the most serious and this is the only solution.
The date has not been set yet, but what is sure is that I will work at Rizzoli in Bologna with Professor Giannini.”
Paola has the support of her Italian club team, Asystel Mc Carnaghi Villa Cortese, and has been assured that she is very welcomed to play for them next season.
