The research shows that sleeping excessively beyond the first 48 hours is counter to healing.

Getting run into by a fellow player is likely much less damaging that running into a sheet of ice with your head. We have had plenty who have suffered severe concussions falling on the ice.

Sorry to hear of your setback. Hopefully the recovery is quick. The discouragement and frustration is hard after a setback like that. I am a year and a half into recovery. Pretty resigned to likely never playing hockey again.

Sounds like your impact was more body than head? I was under the impression that it would take a significant head impact to get a concussion, even with a prior history. Is that wrong?

it really depends, i don't really know if i was hit in the body or head, all i know it shook me up quite a bit and everything is back, not nearly as severe as before which i am thankful for, and it really depends on the incident and your body i guess for how hard it takes to have an effect,
