I think some of it has to do with the stigma video games have with people born before, say.. 1970.

Perhaps it's not wise to stereotype people unless you want it done for people born after 1970.....

I'll generalize this to it's not wise to stereotype people at all.

Uh, maybe not if any kind of surgery and/or therapy doesn't involve repetitive motion stress risks.

Normal, painless mobility comes back quickly after such surgeries, a matter of weeks. Tossing at 80-90 MPH takes a year, not usage of the arm.

My point is ... repetive motion stress is a consideration in recovery ... as one who is dealing and has dealt with various hand, arm, elbow, shoulder issues, I can attest to how the simplest of activities can exacerbate any issue ... from continued video game play, to smart phone and ipad use, to sitting at a desk all day long, extended computer use, etc.

 

We are all different and our bodies handle any kind of various physical activity, even of the passive kind, differently. It's a matter of being aware of response.

I'm not stranger to injuries. I have a connective tissue disorder. At any given time my knees, hands, feet, hips, or elbows can give out.

 

I'm sure that, as an athlete, May will be able to play video games in due time. He's probably playing them right now.

Well, of course in due time, but that's not what you said. And all my point was, that even those types of activities will be monitored and could be limited in any kind of post-surgery/rehab phase.

By "due time" I mean within a month after the surgery, if not half that......

 

As for what's monitored, as I've said I'm not stranger to weird/freak injuries. Every doctor has said to do whatever I feel comfortable doing. I doubt any doctor will forbid the guy from playing video games if he feels up to it......

Well, I guess you and I have had different injuries and different recovery/rehab and different doctors monitoring how different motion activities affect us.

Good golly. There are 12-16 hours of awake time every day. Do you not play games or read books or watch baseball games? Does that make you bad at your job. Wow people? These are humans, not robots.

The irony of people who don't play baseball professionally but spend their days on a baseball forum complaining about professional baseball players having non-baseball hobbies is pretty spectacular.

Yeah, mind.boggling. Wait a minute, shouldn't you be teaching right now? Or at the very least, be thinking about teaching?

Frankly Levi, I don't know how you expect to get above Mrs. Anderson on the depth chart. She reviews power point presentations every Sunday afternoon. And spends her weeknights sending personalized encouragement videos to all of her students. You? You play Zelda. For shame.....

I think it's a national law to have a Mrs. Anderson working in every school district around the USA.... My Mrs. Anderson was a wonderful 5th grade teacher!
