Depends on the injury, I had a broken floating rib last year and the only thing that was that it was painful but no real effects other than pain. So I ignored all guidance and went on and had two matches (both of which I won). If they would have said that if you get hurt again you'll need surgery or something I probably would have waited.

You may not want to make a habit of saying you "ignored" medical advice. Rather, you felt comfortable enough to continue.

Well I posted in my blog that I just had a hip replacement and can wrestle for about 6 weeks, than work slowly back into it.

I prefer doing that than just suspending my profile, which I don't like to do or when others do it

Actually I am going to make a suggestion to the admin today to add a feature that you can suspend email but leave your profile active,. A great idea. that way people who choose not to check email for a while can keep from being flooded with emails upon their return from injury or other personal issues that may require time away from Meet fighters.

It depends on what the injury was and if you were cleared for that activity specifically. Nobody in the comments section is going to be a fraction as qualified as the doctor who examined you to make that call, but if they were clear on what you intended to do and cleared you that's as good as it gets.

You have a lot more faith in doctors than I do. Having seen a dozen of them I recognize their fallibility. I've researched health advice on my own at twice the success rate of what I got from my doctors.

Always best to be honest and up front about everything. Hope I'm on your list of future opponents when you are ready for a super-heavyweight challenger!!

Assuming this is the same thing we talked about, you honestly and truly did everything right. Upfront about everything, and (more so) before the match really shows how honest and respectful you are.

If it’s a NHB fight, then you might not want to tell them but if it’s friendly competition, it’s okay to heir on the side of caution.

When will you be ready to roll? That depends on what your body is telling you and how you’re helping it mend back to 100%.

Take your time. Wrestling isn’t going anywhere, buddy.

I always tell people that the final person responsible for their health is them. A doctor can only give you advice, but it is up to you to be the final judge as to whether that advice is prudent and in your best interest or not. Doctors have liability, so will always answer based on that limitation.

As for physicals activity I would let an opponent know of any soreness or injury that might be aggravated by the match – as some injuries only bothersome during specific movements or angles.

Personally, I would never engage in a new match when something is bothering me. In that case, I would definitely wait.

If a person is injured in a wrestling match and one of the wrestlers has a known and disclosed injury which is a material risk in the circumstances, there is likely to be a shared duty of care and shared legal accountability if anything goes wrong.

15 years ago I fractured a vertebra in my neck in a motorbike accident. I tell my wrestling opponents this. I also tell them that I have been told that he injury is no longer threatening and that I reasonably believe that it is safe for me to wrestle at a recreational pace. I would expect them to rely on that and be protected by my disclosure.

So if you wrestle at a pace that you know is a risk for your opponent, I would say you are at risk of bad consequences if things go wrong. This of course will vary from place to place, but if you had, for example, just recovered from a heart attack, I would not wrestle you.

You should follow the doctors advice. Once you a cleared, it’s best to go back into anything slowly. You run the risk of injuring yourself again if you don’t. Your body will give you a pretty good gauge. Definitely advise your wrestling partner or plan easier more friendly matches at the outset and go from there. 🤓

One thing right up front is that Max (Eagle2009) has always told me before we ever started our match if he has any medical issues. He has taught me lots in this area proving you’re never too old to learn. Guys we can all learn from what Max is saying
