Don't go paintballing. Trust the doctors, they've spent a large amount of their lifes at school. If you have video games, play them. Sleeping works too.
Edit: Read some books.

Bill, You made a mistake coming here to the internet paintball community. These people will not be put off, will not accept partial answers and will hold you accountable for everything you say. They are not your typical customer. Even through all the bickering and flaming, the collective consciousness of this community sits at nothing less than the genius level. They are the highest and best of what paintball has to offer. I have trusted and turned to them for years and they have allowed me to walk among them for which I am grateful.

I defiantly wouldn't go. No matter how big the game. I'd want to make sure I'm all healed up. Especially if you injure the area that's trying to heal you'll probably end up spending even more time out of action.

not worth it stay in bed. I played when my nerve damage was acting up and ended up ripping open my stomach ulcer and ended up throwing up blood after a mathc, but my UNINTELLIGENT DONKEY kept playing...we took 2nd but i ended up in the hospital again and had to resign from my d3 xball team for this season.

Well, I honestly am going to get rid of it. Cause it goes outward, I ran into a wall at work and it felt like they cracked it was that bad. Ouch.

I'd stay away from anything but a couch until your fully healed up. Having a little fun right now is not worth risking your health.

Post operativley you wont be able to move very freely even with NSIAD dosed post operativley, infact there will be some deal of discomfort for some time post surgery. It would be my estimation total recovery time may take upto 1 month. Indeed a thorasic surgeon should be consulted, and advise followed.

If you want an honest opinion, I'd have to say that you should stay at home. I had a collapsed lung around the 30th of June and I can't do any heavy physical activities such as paintball or even lifting because my lung could recollapse and I'm stuck again. If you go to the game, you might have to go through the surgery again, dependant on why you are having surgery in the first place. DON'T GO TO THE GAME. Trust me, you'd likely regret it in the immediate future.

Yeah, stay at home, If it really hurts walking into a wall, I don't think a Scenario is a good idea...at all. Stay at home, relax, game, read, music etc.

Woo! Good thing they scheduled it after the game! They had to talk to the insurance company. They probably won't cover it, but my dad makes quite a bit and the guy doing the surgery didn't have that bad of a price. But I think it is stupid that they think it is cosmetic.

I'm thinking we could fix this ourselves with a hammer, a screw driver, a wire coat hanger, and some duct tape! Anyone want to help? :laugh:

Seriously, as an old fart who blew medical issues off and now I'm paying for it, get a second opinion (because remember that 50% of the doctors practicing medicine graduated in the bottom half of their class - there's alot of quacks out there and I've met a lot of them) or at least ask the surgeon if he's a different doctor. Get it fixed if it needs to be and don't put it off.

Good luck!
