What is the cause if we play soccer after the surgery of raptured duodenum?

Blunt trauma: If you have undergone surgical repair of a ruptured duodenum, you need to wait until you are completely healed before playing soccer again. If you return to play too early, there is a risk of reopening the surgical wound should you fall. I hope that you recover quickly. Wait until your surgeon clears you to return to soccer, since he sees you regularly post-operatively and knows your condition.
