“Hello everyone, it’s Lisa here,” Lisa Murillo, the wife of Mike Murillo posted on the Mike Murillo Racing Facebook page. “Just wanted to give everyone an update on Mike and his surgery. Everything went great with no complications or issues. He will be in the hospital for at least a couple more days despite what he wants.

“Appreciate every single one of y’all. He’s gotta long road to recovery ahead of him but man he is one tough cookie and I admire his strength. He’s so ready to do what he has to do to recover quick and will be back in action in no time. Big thank you to nurse Monica and Nurse Norma for taking great care of Mike.”
According to OrthoBethesda.com, a double knee replacement recovery time is about 13 weeks. He may be fully healed around May.
