View Full Version : Injured

7/23/2006 3:04pm,
Well I was rolling in my jiu-jitsu class last Monday and while I was trying to pass guard I took an up kick to the face on accident. Broke my nose. No blood however which from what the doctors told me was a good thing; although they did a CT scan to make sure that there was no internal bleeding. You can tell if you look at it from the top of my head to the bottom but head on, you can't really see unless you look hard.

I went to the doctor and he said to leave it be for now as it doesn't look bad in the least. Basically since I don't have a picture I'll describe. On the right side, the bridge of the bone was dinted in. It was more noticable with the swelling but now that most of that is gone it's hard to tell if you don't point it out. I'm going to wait 2 more weeks and then evaluate it again. It it's ok then I will just leave it the way it is and get back to some light training. The doctor said that after that time I feel it's crooked or if I'm having breathing problems or anything of the like they will go about fixing it. The doctor said that it will take around 2 weeks to heal up good as new since the bone is stationary and has no muscles putting pressure on it such as the bones in your legs and arms.

There is a submission grappling tourny on Sept 2 I would like to do and possibly could do but it depends on how I feel. What I'm curious about is have anyone else had this happen to them? What was required to have it fixed? How long where you out of action; working out, sparring, rolling, etc.? What was the advice givin to you by your doctor?

Ya know.... we have a whole section for injuries, and this isn't it.

Well I looked around and couldn't find so if the mods would be so happy as to move this to that section then by all means, please do.

you don't really need a nose.

Gee I don't know. (http://www.bullshido.net/forums/) I mean, it must be around here somewhere. (http://www.bullshido.net/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=8) Oh, there it is, "Physical, Training, Diet and Health"! (http://www.bullshido.net/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=23)

Phew, now that that arduous search is over, I'm off to find Jimmy Hoffa and the Cup of the Holy Grail that an anonymous tipster told me he had on him when he was buried in the Arc of the Covenant somewhere in Atlantis.
