I mean what could a doctor possibly know about injuries and recovery times? Random people on the intertubes probably know best.

Here's a better question:

Are a few days on the snow worth taking the chance to injure yourself even more seriously?
Yeah..................I asked the doc and they said 4-6 weeks. I was just wondering what others had experienced with this type of injury and if it would be closer to four weeks, shorter, or maybe longer, especially with the trips that I have scheduled. My experience with docs is that they always give you the worst case scenario and yes, they are not perfect. For example, I hurt my ankle playing ice hockey a few years back and the doc said it would be one-two months before I would be able to skate again. Three weeks after the injury, I was skating perfectly fine.
