I have a way of convincing myself that all injuries I have should be ignored. Maybe that’s why I’ve had several surgeries in the last few years that have required surgery.
In case you were wondering, I haven’t always listened to doctors either. Especially when I was wrestling! After my compartment syndrome surgery I have learned to actually listen to my body and back off when I need to back off – recovering from surgery isn’t fun and I don’t want any repeats.
