Every now and then people get sick or have to undergo surgery of various kinds. The time it takes to recover enough to be able to play the trumpet again should be of interrest to all of us, since illness can affect us all. So, please tell YOUR story about what affected you, how the recovery went and how long it took for you to recover enough to play again! The intention of this thread is to create a bank of experiences that players now and in the future can make use of. Injuries, sickness etc. are things that most likely will scourge us in the future, as well as in the present . . .
