The recovering starlet who is still unable to stand wants to undergo surgery again All S.H.E member Selina Jen wants for her wedding is to be able to stand up straight.
So much that she is willing to undergo the painful procedure of having her skin grafted. She revealed on her microblog yesterday that her ankle is swelling terribly and she is unable to stand still for five seconds.
However, the 29-year-old’s doctors are advising against the surgery as they feel she’s not ready to go under the knife again. They are worried that her physiotherapy efforts for the past six months will go to waste.
When asked if Selina will be able to wear revealing short skirts, Richard laughed, “It’s really hard to say. She always does the unimaginable. I guess it all depends on her frame of mind.”
Reporters asked him if Selina has accepted the fact that her skin will never return back to its previous state, Richard answered, “I don’t think so!” after a slight hesitation.
NEWS on S: It was a lie, no immediate treatment after Selina's accident
After her father and sister were interviewed on television, Selina Ren’s fiance Richard Chang appeared on a TV interview yesterday.
Making his first TV program appearance, Chang talked about Selina’s side of story and described the explosive scene was not seriously planned out. The S.H.E member was actually very nervous on the day of filming the explosive scene. There were no water, stunt double, rehearsal, and not even the basic fire equipment. Looking at the videos Selina’s assistant took before the accident, Selina and her partner Yu Hao Ming were standing at the door of the warehouse. Already scared to death, Selina eventually walked in while holding Yu’s hand.
“Selina was very scared but she didn’t dare to speak out,” Chang said. “They just took their first step, and the explosion already happened. No time to even run away!”
The immediate treatment after the accident was a joke, too. The heavily burned Selina and Yu were sent to a nearby small hospital, but the hospital refused to treat them; it was Selina who called an ambulance from a specialized hospital to the set. Only a stretcher was available when the ambulance arrived and Yu generously let Selina to lay on it. Chang expressed Selina is very grateful of Yu’s action.
“During the one hour ride to the hospital, Yu was encouraging her. A little black person encouraging another black person, Selina didn’t forget about this part.”
The singer’s legs are sacrificed in this brutal accident. Other than the bottom of her feet and toes, all other areas of her feet are ruined. Chang said the singer cannot sleep well after the accident because of pain. She can only bend her knees 90 degrees. She should be able to walk fine in half of a year if she continues physiotherapy. However, still a long way to go.
“I’ve been thinking what I want the most during this period. Apology? Money? It’s all meaningless. The thing [healthy Selina] I want can’t return anymore,” Chang sobbed. “I think it needs 20 years for scars and everything to be healed. Basically, she doesn’t have sweat glands on her legs anymore.”
Chang dropped tears three times on the show and cannot seem to let it go. He said Selina does not blame anyone, but sometimes on herself for being a coward.
“She said it’s her fault, too. It might be alright she just say she is scared. She even blames herself for running too slowly. But I don’t think it’s her fault!”
It is said their wedding would be hold on April 1 as planned, however, Chang announced it would be delayed indefinitely and the decision is made by him and Selina.
“We’ve been discussing it. The longer it delays, the better she would recover. I hope she can be a pretty and happy bride on her big day.”
*this one’s from a different article: Richard expressed that after the accident, Selina did not blame the production crew. Instead, the singer blamed herself for not telling anyone her fears and for running too slowly.
Richard felt that Selina did no wrong. He revealed that he had already acquired 80 per cent of evidence required to fight his case and swore to see justice done to his fiancée. *
