So this means it goes away?

There are two types, acute and chronic. Acute is more common and likely will go away in a few months.

Is the potential bleeding treatable? Meaning, let's say she takes a hard shot to the stomach - if you rush her to the hospital, could they control the bleeding? That would be my concern - whether or not it would be a treatable event.

A head shot is more dangerous. It could cause bleeding that isn't noticed until it is too late. Think Natasha Richardson. In her soccer games, few players ever head the ball. I guess one way to look at it is how your child plays the game. Unfortunately, my daughter is an aggressive all out player who isn't afraid to take a hit. If we let her play, I would need to get the coach to move her out of her normal center midfielder position. She kind of feels that she needs to play since she is the leader of the team. Right now I'm kind of leaning towards holding her out for the first game to see her counts next week. If they get above 50, I'll not hold her back.
