Kidney injury

Recently, 4 days ago, I bruised my left kidney with a 1cm bruise. The doc says I shouldn’t lift for 2 weeks, however i’m feeling fine, and the pissing blood is gone, (from a human eyed view anyway). So in anyone’s opinion, should i begin training again, or wait it out?

risk reward ratio is way out of whack. Do as your doctor says.


You would have to be a very high level of stupid to lift now. Wait the two weeks. A kidney injury can be potentially life threatening. Don’t do it yet!
