In June 2018, Iordache said to Romanian media that her recovery has been going slowly, and that there is a 50% chance of her returning to gymnastics.
In September 2018, Larisa went to Vienna, Austria, with the help of former Romanian head coaches Mariana Bitang and Octavian Bellu, to have her 3rd surgery on her injured Achilles tendon. It was performed by Dr. Weinstable, who is also a professor of surgery.
In January 2019, Iordache had a final examination on her Achilles tendon by Dr. Weinstable in Vienna. She was told that she was able to begin training at full capacity. Iordache officially announced her comeback to international elite gymnastics level. Her goals for 2019 were to compete at the World Artistic Gymnastics Championships in Stuttgart and the qualification to 2020 Tokyo Olympics. She had not sufficiently recovered from her injury to do so.
Larisa's older brother, Razvan, is a soccer player.
