    Use the time for other things. Ive been ut of action for 4 months.
    Read up on how to treat your injury plus rehabillitation exercises. It will get better in the meantime catch up on nox sets or do some study, so you cna easily manage sport when recovered. It sucks, but be patient as it takes as long as it takes.

    I've made the decision to play through most of my injuries, and just mask them. It'll shorten how long I have in sport, but at least I'll get to spend my prime playing as much as possible.

    Unfortunately that isn't a possibility for me at the moment as Ive lost a lot of movement in my ankle so can't physically do my sport, and have only just got off crutches as couldn't weight bare for a while

    No idea, but you should check you arent taking risks becayse some injuries need to heal properly and playing through them cna cause problems in later life. You know your body and its your risk I don't. Just be careful.

    Dislocated both shoulders, and done damage to MCL, but health in later life < playing sport now.

    Wow 4 months is a lot, Im hoping to be back after 3 (hopefully this isn't overly optimistic) what did you do? Only have 2 months left of my final year of uni so guess the extra time will probably help me get my dissertation done

    Rotator cuff. Its functional, but I don wnat to risk it until absolutely sure. I gave it a complete rest and will be into rehab strengthening next week.

    My point is get your priorities right. Exams, then you cna play as much sport as you wnat over the simmer. If you go back too soon, then you could make it worse, so patience is the key. Youtube is really good for physio exercises, so look them up and you can do those at home.

    Good happy recovery and keep the painkillers handy.

    One thing I do is look for new training plans, so maybe you cna write a list of new things youd like to do when you get better so you have soemthing to look forward to.
