I am a professional boxer concerned about my career now after a recent detached retina surgery. How long after the surgery should I wait to fight?
Sugar Ray Lenord. Sugar ray had a detached retina in 82 announced his retirement but said he was cleared to fight tried to fight in 84 had more eye surgery and ended up retiring--i'd take seriously whatever your ophthalmologist says and don't take unnecessary risks!
Just Guessing. I am a retinal specialist. I generally feel that a retina attached for 6 weeks to 3 months is unlikely to re-detach. There are so many scenarios and variables that i'd really have to defer to your retinal specialist.
