Hello Doctor based on your advice and the ok from my GP who had me on complete cognitive and physical rest for the past 3 weeks due to the fact that my bad concussion was not treated until 15 days after due to travel....I am now starting to exercise as you recommended and get out as well as 1 hour a day on TV, 1/2 hour on computer....I still get headaches but as you said part of the healing...will test the exercise today! However since my concussion my bp has risen and has given me new life in the sexual area, should I take advantage with of course a willing partner???
additionally my bp with not much medicine was 123/77 but since the concussion has been that low at rest but has been clocked from 123 to 140 from 75 to 85/90 My Doctor said don't worry about your blood pressure we are treating your concussion period...
Hi. My name isXXXXX and I am online and available to help you today. Thank you for your patience.

I believe you will be OK to engage in sexual activity, but nothing too crazy....

Make sure to let your treating doctor know about your plans.

Does this make sense to you?
