      What kind of surgery did you have for this?

      I had mine over 15 years ago and it took me about 3 months to recover but I wasn’t able to play any contact sports or play golf for a year.

      I almost had surgery for it. They said that recovery would be around a year, and i wasnt able to have a backpack on thats more then 1 pound. But it could have changed sense when i was told that was 7years ago.
