    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    I bruised my ear

    It hurts when I bend it, although everyone that has looked at it says they can't detect any sort of swelling. Is this the beginning of cauliflower ear, or nothing to really worry over? Should I not train until it goes away? Any help is appreciated.

    Cauliflowers! Woo! awesome.

    I laughed at my BJJ instructors cauli ears. (I honestly didnt know that cauliflower ears was a permanent thing.) I thought he had just got them recently from some tough training.

    Needless to say he beat the crap out of me that night.

    Tape your ears down, or end up with ears like those mentioned and mine...I was stupid and younger and now they ache when it is cold...and one is ugly.

    I'd think pain would be the indicator?

    before i started MA I had stretched ear lobes with big ass plugs in them. I went to a plastic surgeon on got them surgically fixed. price: 750 an ear. probably more than that.

    Some of the guys in my gym have it pretty bad, so bad infact that it no longer looks like an ear.
    Get some wrestling headgear (the earcup style) it helps out immensely. It feels weird the first time you use them, but you will get used to them, unless you want F'd up ears. Also hit up one of those medical supply stores for syringes. You can use them to drain the ear lobes (if they are starting to swell) it helps to relieve the pressure (I'll ask around to see what size needles & pm you if you want).
    Also know that it will never just go away, you have to really take care of them (draining/wearing headgear/etc). It sucks, but it's the truth.
    [A friend once told me he found Jennifer Connelly hot.
    "Would she still be hot if she were melting in a car wreck, like at the end of Pollock, smelling of burnt hair and bubbling intestines?" I asked.
    "Oh hell yeah."
    "How? How would you even have sex with her?"
    "Just let her cool and fold her over, like an omolette."
    Since then we've always had this universal sign for Jennifer Connelly, it's like an "opening a book" motion, only backwards. And we are often known to softly remark "....like an omolette".]--boyd
