Just wondering if anyone has had a detached retina. How was the recovery time. Are you able to train/fight now?

Thanks for any info.

I have detached my retina in my left eye five times. I have had five surgeries. The last one being on the 22nd of this past month.

Recovery sucks because you can't do anything for a few weeks. When I mean anything that includes pushing when you go to the bathroom because you might tear it again.

I will be back on the mat in a few more weeks and I am going to try out a new head gear to protect myself. I usually roll 4x a week so hopefully my eye will hold this time.
