Default Excruciating wrist injury from left hooks

I can never stop going to the boxing gym less than three times a week because it is really annoying not to train. I take boxing seriously and have eaten clean, trained at home, extra cardio outside of the gym etc. since last September (decided to take boxing up properly a month later when I was fit).

The real issue is I can't not train because I just love it and as I started boxing later than other teenagers, I feel like now is the time to get stuck in.

I rested for two weeks over the Christmas period and briefly kept on top of cardio and that but my wrist still didn't recover fully, although it felt much better. I would have thought two weeks, however, would have been plenty of time for recovery - considering my age. If the pain is excruciating, I usually give my wrist up to 48 hours rest.

I am thinking should I continue training but not throw any left hooks? When I hit pads, the pain strikes there and then; the same occurs when hitting the bag.

Can anyone please advise? Thank you in advance.
