Hey everybody i just got back from the hospital from getting my appendix taken out. I was worrying about my trumpet playing after the surgery, and how long i should wait before picking it up again, and maybe what are some excersizes to keep me in shape so i don't loose too much ground. Homecoming is next friday at my school and i have a feeling i won't make it on the feild for it. Everyone says not to play i asked my nurse and she said just be careful. They have me doing breathing excersizes and my lung capacity is almost back to normal. But i havent attempted playing yet. Just wondering if anyone had this happen to them and what they did Thanks everyone!!
