I had a neck dissection & had most my SCM muscle removed & have Nerve damage (Right side of neck). Should I be avoiding sports (MMA) since there is less muscle protecting my Artery? (Insurance ran out so can't consult with doctor)

In brief: Absolutely

All contact sports should be avoided at this point as your cervical spine will be exposed as well.
