    Sounds like a brutal basketball game. I'm sorry to hear this has happened to you before. As a nurse, I would recommend increasing you intake of Calcium and Vitamins A&D. Also keep in mind, vitamins E & K also contribute to the healing process of bone. It's early in the season, avoiding further impact to the site of injury may save part of season for you to hit the court and give it your all. Don't quit. Take it easy for a few weeks, maybe set a follow up appoint to check the status of your injury in a few weeks. Wishing you a speedy recovery!
