Getting back into intense exercise after concussion

Was playing football and clashed heads with another player, resulting in a deep cut above my eye that had to be glued and obviously slight concussion. At the hospital she said dotn exercise for a few days but she didnt mention when I could get back into interval training etc.

So was wondering if anyone with a similar experience could shed some light on this subject.

    I've never had concussion, but I've had a fair few injuries. Basically, do what the doctor says. If she says no exercise for a few days, that means nothing remotely athletic for those few days - not even a jog.

    After those few days, take it easy for the first couple and then you should be OK.

    I'd really go with what the doctor/nurse says mate - they tend to be better at this lark then a bunch of people on an internet site.

    And seriously - unless you're a pro is it really going to make that much difference whether you go intervalling on Monmday or leave it unitil Thursday as per medical recommendations?

    Leave it for a few days so that you don't crash and die in a horribly embarrassing way caused by concussion that will ensure that your name is mocked forever.
