When I have this done, will I ever be able to go out in the sun to enjoy the sports that I love or will I never be able to go in the sun again? I'm confused because I've been told both.

You need to ask the treating doctor his/her belief of sun exposure following this therapy.

Avoid tanning for several weeks prior to receiving a CO2 Laser treatment. Otherwise, sun exposure is fine as long as you take normal precautions, such as the use of sunscreen and sunblock for UVA and UVB protection.
