So I'm going in for a consult in about a week or so, and as happy as this makes me I can't quite help but have a few questions.

1. Post surgery...I'm starting on my school's varsity football team and if I get the surgery it will be during my lifting session for next year's season... how long should I expect to not be able to lift?

2. How long will the surgery put me out of school...if at all...

3. Drain tubes? are those always put in?

1. Probably at least 4 weeks before you start light lifting. 6 weeks till you are back to regular workouts.

2. Plan on missing a few days. You may be ok sooner. If you can do it on a Thursday, you should be fine by Monday.

3. No, not always. Depends on the doctor. I didn't have any.
