FREDDY TYLICKI has admitted there are "more bad days than good ones at the moment" as he continues to recover from life-changing injuries in hospital, but that he remains positive about the future.
In a candid interview with Matt Chapman for The Sun, Tylicki said: "I'm going to be moved to rehab in the next couple of weeks and I’m looking forward to that, as it will be the next chapter in life.
"I've been in this hospital bed over five weeks and I have to say the doctors and nurses could not have been better — but it's been very intense.
"Going to rehab is something I'm really looking forward to as they are fully specialised and focused on patients like myself."
Tylicki will be moving to the London Spinal Cord Injury Centre in Stanmore and said: "They will show me how to dress myself, how to make my own bed, how to go swimming, how to drive a car.
Of the potential scope of his recovery, he said: "In America there are a lot of things going on and I've been Googling away. I've been making myself wiser and I'm interested in anything. Who knows what will happen as far as possibly allowing me to walk again."
For all Tylicki's positive outlook, he remains grounded in reality. "It's hard to talk about the future. Even harder for me as I’ve never experienced anything like this. The doctors have been very realistic, though.
"The impact on my spine was very, very hard because of the speed we went. But no one knows. I could be feeling something in one month or three months down the road. There's a lot of bruising in my body that needs to heal."
