Sorry to hear of your injury…and it reminds me of myself as I looked at your age. When I hit 38yrs old….I clearly remembered that I was no longer able to heal over night…and it took more time than I was used to. It was a real aggravation as I felt like I was Superman!
Really…no one here is going to be able to tell you when you may heal, and to what extent your injury is. I might suggest going to get a second opinion, just to make sure the Dr didn't miss something. You sound like a pretty active guy…but your going to have to take it easy for a while.
Do you teach jujitsu for a living? I used to play baseball on a church league….and soon realized that in order to protect myself from a career changing injury…I was going to have to slow down a bit. I'm in no way telling you what to to…just food for thought…and actually it's probably a good way to stay in shape….but would be too rough for me at my age and shape! LOL
While you may not have broken anything…you may have really pulled and or stretched a few things from the fall….Im betting it will take quite a bit of time to heal.
Good luck, and take care,
