Default Re: Intro and Question re Sports after surgery?

Hi Shan, our surgeon has no issues with normal training, altho my daughter has elected to reduce her training to around 4 hours a week so is not full on. She does everything the other kids do at training, unless her shoulders hurt and then she cuts back on the butterfly!
Her surgeon asked for her to give up contact sports this season, which she did but is now doing P.E. at school incl basketball, hockey and netball (5mths post surgery). She knows her limits and isn't pushing herself too hard, but I think its just as important to keep fit and keep her muscle tone so have no issues with the level of sports she's doing.
Cheers
Sarah
