Fans hoping to shake former B2K member Raz B's injured hand in the near future will have to sit tight as new reports claim the singer's recent China glass accident will take months to heal.
Reports claim Raz's hand will not be back to normal for at least 90 days.
B2K singer Raz B is healing nicely from the gruesome hand injury he suffered in China this week, but he tells TMZ it's going to be AT LEAST three months until his hand is functional again. Raz B tells TMZ he lost count of how many stitches it took to sew him up ... but says doctors will remove his patch work sometime next week. Raz says he's still experiencing numbness in his fingers ... and doctors have told him it could take at least three months until he regains full functionality. (TMZ)
Earlier this week, details on the bloody accident surfaced online.
B2K singer Raz B nearly died Sunday in China -- after accidentally falling through a glass door in his hotel room ... slicing his wrist wide open ... and losing a SCARY amount of blood. Raz -- who had been performing in Shanghai before the accident -- tells TMZ, he tripped hard inside his room ... and when he tried to break his fall, he crashed through a sliding glass door. Raz says the broken glass caught his wrist and ripped it to pieces, tearing through ligaments, nerves, tendons ... right down to the bone. (We've seen a graphic close-up of the injury, and decided to spare you the visuals. You're welcome.) (TMZ)
Doctors reportedly worked on fixing his hand for close to five hours.
Raz says he immediately began gushing blood and quickly passed out. Someone else in the room then alerted the hotel, and an ambulance was called. Raz was rushed to Huashan Hospital Fudan University, where doctors operated to repair his mutilated wrist -- a grueling procedure that took roughly 5 hours. Raz was released from the hospital Monday. He has since canceled his remaining tour dates -- for now. (TMZ)
Following the operation, Raz took a moment to update fans on Twitter.
"MAN.... Cherish life and your loved one's. You just never know. THANK YOU LORD FOR SAVING MY LIFE. pic.twitter.com/1zsVXi0Z," he tweeted July 10th. (Raz B's Twitter)
