    When will this heal?

    This was probably your first question when you got injured the first time; you were training with such excitement and BAM! You had to stop for a while.
    We all know the best medicine... patience. But who wants to wait? Unfortunately, the only choice is to get some rest and take some days off.
    So tell us, what was your first injury?

    My first injury occured only seconds after I was born, I had so much of that slime on me the doc couldn't quite keep a hold of me. The next injury was some time after this when I fell down the stairs... oh wait, is this supposed to be training related...

    I blew my knee out working on a bag, that sucked, it took a month to get back into training, and three months before it was full time, six months until I had a true 100% recovery (even though it still hurts).

    dude my first month in bjj i cracked 2 ribs, i came back a month and a half later and rolling with my teacher i broke my finger

    right now i must have a bruised rib or maybe a hairline fracture cause i was getting kneed in the ribs and i heard one click and then pain but it was nothing compared to the first time so i think its not so bad

    something good to gloat about is i have only been doing this a little while but a collegiate wrestler came to our school from an mma club limme tell ya this guy is monstrous lol 6'4 atleast its hard to tell cause im 6'2 and im not used to looking up but guy is solid 280 pounds man i was like geez. but i went at it with him he got me good man he threw me around like a rag doll lol, i was even thinking about the fact that i was grappling a wrestler lol but just so you guys know im only 210 im pretty solid aswell but this guy is just ridiculous

    the good news anyway was i submitted him with an arm triangle, i had him in half guard or he had me whatever dude is so big i felt like i was floating lol i was like shit this isnt good. i was going for a brabo variation of the figure 4 which ive never done before lolo but i went for it he tried to shrimp out then i got him in side conrol immediately gave up the brabo choke and said **** it his arms are so big i went for the arm triangle which another one ive never done he fought it good almost beasted out of it but i got good position and applied my leverage and submitted him

    very satisfying lol espcially being injured, hopefully next time he wont kill me lolo

    oh and i was never really seriously injured from any gung fu training, i got an infectioin in my legs in hong kong once but thats it and that was a fluke really. i hadb een kicked in the ribs and stuff and nothin, bjj is really takin it to me haha

    Dude, time to get a new teacher.

    Bones can take two months plus to heal, depending upon where they are, what stresses are put on them, and how mobile or immobile they are. When dealing with ribs, it can either be bone or cartilage fracture, depending upon where the injury is. And with ribs fracture, one always has to be concerned about pneumothorax.

    It depends upon what you think is "healed". I'll post a long diatribe on bone healing, in the next few days.

    Four to six weeks sees a healing bone fracture, but it is mainly soft callus, and not strong calcified repair. At two months, you are getting the fracture starting to see some calcification. To get to normal strength, again, depending upon the area, takes three to six months.

    Be careful what you read on websites.

    Especially this one...
