Petrea Webster is grateful one of the most exhausting periods of her hockey career is now a distant memory.

The women's Black Sticks striker is back with the national squad at the International Hockey Open in Darwin, five months after she broke her nose and suffered severe concussion symptoms.

Webster says no one expected the setback to be so severe.

She says for two months all she could do was walk for 10 minutes as the headaches were so bad.

The Black Sticks meet Japan in their final pool game at 7:30pm tonight.
