How long should I wait before drinking alcohol after a car accident with a possible liver laceration?
Pros and cons: Early on in recovery from a concussion it is good to avoid stimulant drinks. Your brain need to rest not only from physical but from cognitive tasks. After a few weeks a good part of recovery has occurred and caffeine containing drinks in moderation are ok (2 cups a day before noon). For those with post concussion syndrome and prolonged recovery, up to a year, caffeine can help with symptoms, http://www.bidmc.org/Centers-and-Departments/Departments/Neurology/Concussion-and-Traumatic-Brain-Injury-Clinic/Educational-Information-About-Traumatic-Brain-Injury/Post-Concussive-Syndrome.aspx ...Read more
Minor concussion a week ago. Symptoms completely gone after 2 days. When can I go back to exercising, drinking alcohol, and drinking coffee?
Do not rush: you may find that exercise brings back symptoms of your concussion. Do not rush trying to get back to full exercise tolerance. Start slowly and build up slowly. You may find that alcohol may be more compromising than it has been in the past. Moderation should be the rule. The same with coffee and other caffeine containing drinks. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I just got surgery a week ago for a herniated disc. How long after a surgery like that are you alowed to drink alcohol?
Dr. Said I have a 3rd degree sprain with minor fractures. Symptons relieved consiredably after 1st day. How long before i can play soccer again?
4-6 weeks minimum: A 3rd degree sprain means the ligaments have separated completely. If you do not allow them time to heal, it is likely the ankle will be chronically unstable. That type of injury deserves at least a brace or immobilizing boot for the first 3-4 weeks, followed by gradually lessening support. Often physical therapy is helpful in maintaining range of motion. Take time to heal. Soccer will wait. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
