Does anyone know how long one would have to stay in a hospital due to a Grade One concussion? I forgot if it was a week or overnight. I'm obviously not the one that has one, nor anyone I know. It's a question for Winter Manhattan.Thanks in advance, Tony.
back when i flipped my 80 on me the doc told my mom not to let me go to sleep for (i forgot) but it was more than 4 hours incase i had a one...
i didn't have one it was jsut a safty thing i guess...
i have been in a coma ..not the same thing tho.
here's some info i googled...
Concussions range in severity from mild to severe, but they all share one common factor --- they temporarily interfere with the way your brain works. They can affect memory, judgment, reflexes, speech, balance and coordination.
Usually caused by a blow to the head, concussions don't always involve a loss of consciousness. In fact, most people who have concussions never black out. Many people have had concussions and not realized it. humm maybe i did have one??? i dk
Concussions are common, particularly if you play a contact sport like football. But every concussion, no matter how mild, injures your brain. This injury needs time and rest to heal properly. Luckily, most concussions are mild and people usually recover fully.

Thanks, I learned quite a few from that site. In fact, thank you very much because it added a few ideas. Now that I think of it though, I think the one-week time period was the amount of time one could return to playing sports after the concussion. I remember my sister's boyfriend telling me that one had to stay overnight for a concussion, but I'd like to a be a hundred percent sure.Thanks again!
