She is supposed to be going to Cedar Point in May and she told me the other day that her mom said she wasn't going because of her concussion. I just spoke to her mom and said I think she may be overreacting since its two months away and that if there is any doubt we could talk to her neurosurgeon again and ask his opinion. Looking on the internet it seems there have been studies on the effects of G forces/roller coasters and if they can cause TBI and it seems to not be the case. My concern would be if she smacked her head because of the G's.
I have no problem backing up my ex's decision or fighting it based on what is safe for my child so I am looking for some opinions from those in the know. What I am dealing with here is an ex who sat and listened to how serious this injury was, and had been given specific directions by the surgeon. and then a week later asked me if I thought it was okay if my daughter ( who was out of school and excused from taking exams for two more weeks because of the concussion) went to Zumba class. I naturally asked her if she was really that stupid and told my daughter under no circumstances was she to go. ( Once again we are back to the fact that I was lured in by my ex's hot little ass and good looks because it sure as hell wasn't her brain power that attracted me so may years ago)
I am not looking for someone to back up my decision that we should play wait and see and not jump to conclusions. I am looking for educated opinions and I have no trouble telling my daughter she can't go to the park.
I will say this about the current outlook on concussions. The doctors don't play and they take it much more serious than when I had one back in my teens.
