    Fin to skull. How long should I rest?

    I was (trying) to surf North Topsail Beach, NC, yesterday, ate it and got a fin to the top of my head. The board is a foam longboard with softer fins, good choice.

    I didn't go unconcious, feel generally well, and have a small bump. How long should I rest to avoid long term damage?

    Thank you.

    Sam

    Yes. Come to SI for medical advice.

    Do you have a concussion? If knot, you should be fine.

    A couple of years at the minimum. Head injuries can lower the seizure threshold and that would be deadly in the water.

    You have a brain cloud. It's an incurable disease with no symptoms; but you will be dead within 6 months. You have some time left, some life left. My advice, live it well.

    Go surf Mavericks.

    No blood no foul..surf. If you're fuzzy be careful wait a day or three. You'll know...else..go surf.

    The fact that you feel well is a sure sign theres something MAJOR wrong. Time to hang it up. No more physical activities for you. Tough break pal.
