4. Get medical treatment to play, try to play and see what happens.

At any step along the way, symptoms may surface/re-surface and you have to take a step back and try again. Thus, no timetable....
This is exactly right. After my first concussion, I returned to work for a week and eventually it set me back ten-fold and I had to stay off for another three. It's an incredibly unpredictable injury to recover from and I'm not convinced you fully recover for at least the first year if it was a mid-grade or higher concussion.
