hello my lovey's,

I think i have a stupid question but i will ask it anyway. So at work i hit my head on something and needed to get some stitches. it was not to bad and the doctor said i should just lay off the BJJ / Muay Thai till i got them out. Im cool with that, but the next day i just worked out (Jump Rope, Tread mill, then heavy bag) and i felt like my endurance was out the window. Couldn't even jump rope for more then 3 minutes after any easy 25 min run. I have taken a few more days off just because i felt i didn't want to f myself up for the long run.

Is this just my body putting energy into healing my f'ed up head?

Im not to worried i was just wondering if someone could share any information/Experiences.

Couple of questions:

1) Did you lose any blood from the injury? If so, how much?
2) Were you placed on any antibiotic and/or pain medication by the physician?
3) How long between the sutures and the exercises did you have? What was your nutrition liked the day before and the day off exercise?
4) Were you evaluated for a concussion?

Hey man, thanks for the info. Something to think about. Just got back from the gym. I did a medium workout and felt good.

I didnt think there would be any long term compications. It was just a minor cut on my head.

thanks MattB

Not problem. If you are feeling better there probably isn't much to worry about. The initial weakness could've been from poor nutrition, a reaction to medication, etc.
