    Ok so I dislocated my left shoulder lifting last week and it has been more difficult in recovery than normal so my doc put it in a sling. Since I fence with my right hand is it still safe to do some drills or is that a stupid idea and do I need to sit out? Normally I would let myself rest but I’ve been missing a lot of practice lately and don’t want to miss even more. Thanks for the advice.

    It's your body. Do what you want.

    If it were my body, I'd let the arm that I dislocated heal before I went jostling it all over the place.

    you should ask your doctor, not a bunch of randos on the internet

    Indeed, ask your actual DOCTOR
