I did post here a few weeks bag debating on going to the doctor about my feet. I did not want to go because of my hockey career. After suffering my 4th concussion in less than a year my doctor told me that if I continue to play I am putting my life at risk. As hard as it is for me I am going to have to hang the skates up for now at least. I have played hockey my whole life and know it is going to be hard. I've had several surgeries from badly broken noses to broken ankles, you name it I probably have had it done. I scheduled the appointment for tomorrow for my orthopedic surgeon. He did advise me to get the surgery done, but due to my hockey career I said I could deal with the pain.
I was just looking for any advice. Does it really help as much as my doctor was saying. I have done physical therapy, have orthopedics, etc... I think this is my only option when knee and back pain every day. How bad is the pain. If I had it on my Christmas break would that be enough time to recover to get back to school or should I take the semester off. Thanks for any advice you can offer.
