I was in an accident several weeks ago that left me bouncing from one medical center to another. I am currently recovering from a reconstruction of the left Occipital (or Orbital) bone.
The surgery itself is not a big deal, and its the most common ocular surgery performed. My concern is that my skull is now made of bone and plastic, with the left eye sitting right on top of a plastic insert.
So do I hang up my gloves and focus on Judo or other non-striking competitive sports, or confine my boxing to opponents with no arms or legs?
Does anybody think proper head gear, 16oz +/- gloves and decent defense is enough protection?
My doctor has cleared me for exercise and work, but no martial arts or sports for another 4 weeks because the muscles need time to bond with the plastic. I have time to think things over and welcome any and all suggestions.
