I say take it easy and hold off,that bow will still be there when you have healed up.

Hang it up untill you can consult with your doctor on shooting. He will most likely frown on the idea.

I'm going to have to agree with SL, I don't think it would be a good idea to shoot just yet. Lord willing you will be healed up in no time and back shooting.:cool:

The doc might not want you to get your blood pressure too high right now. That might be why the seemingly unrelated 15 lbs limit.

I agree with others. Try to push and you may have a set back and a bad one. And when you are able, start with a kid's bow, say 10 to 12 pounds and go from there. Give them muscles time to remember and rebuild. That's how I got back, though from having my bow hand rebuilt. Talk about ouchie....

Yeah I would hold off on shooting you definitely don't need any set backs! Just relax for a while and give yourself a chance to heal.

Grave, take it easy and listen to the doc. I've been through 2 back surgeries so far, and they know what they are talking about. lol 5 months after the surgeries, I was finally allowed to shoot a 60# bow. That was a long 5 months both times, but it was better than getting screwed up worse, and not being able to shoot anymore.

I feel for you brother!My bottom jaw is wired together so I know what you're going through.The bad news is you are probably not going to be using your bow for about two months.It took six months before I could eat a steak again.Wish you a speedy recovery!

That's awful! Any sign from the attackers? Does the police do something about your case?

I remember quite well what happened with you. How big is your town and the area around? I don't think there are so many people using metal bars against their fellow citizens, so the police should know most of them and could interrogate them. This was an attempt for murder, not a joke!!! Nevermind who started the fight they had absolutely no right to use such a weapon.
Again - wish you a quick recovery ... and a gargantuan meal when you're able to have it! :)

well i went to the doc yesterday.they let my jaw loose then shut it back up.xrays did not look great.doc told me to do some biting exerises after my surgery and well it caused micro fractures on the side they did not plate because it was fractured not broke.the center of my jaw ware they did plat it is healing up great.so now i have 2 or 3 more weeks or my jaw being closed up.on top of that i have a fracture down my right hand.no need to cast it because its not broke,but i cant pull back with my relrase.i say that cus i got that aok to go ahead and shoot.since the 18th of march i have lost 25 pounds.it sucks i just got the go ahead to shoot andi have a fracture on my hand.such is life but it will heal in no time.just wanted to give an update.thanks for all of your support in this.

on a lighter note,for you guys who are looking to shed a few pound try my weight los program.all you need is 1 wired shut jaw.slim fast,carnation breakfast shakes,boost protein shakes and yes in 2 weeks you too can loose upto and more then 25 pounds.take it from me...it works
