Default Cs inbetween ck prep? Good idea or bad?

hey guys m in a dire need of advice..my brain is goin back and forth like saw
i am an img. yog 2012. i gave step1 in in oct 2013 and landed a 220 which made me depressed cuz i worked my ass off for ..i wasted about 3 months and somehow regained strength for CK ..i ended up revising step1 again for CK and it helped me a lot ... now m stuck as i have done first read of CK and have less than 20 days for uworld(the most imp thing)
scheduled for CK on 12 june
scheduled for CS on 9th july
i cant risk my CK score i have been told that i shouldnt take any risk wid CS
M plannin to give CS now on 9th july and CK in end august to make it for match before september 15th.....
M WORRIED THAT A GAP OF MONTH FOR CS INBETWEEN CK PREP WILL MAKE MY CK SCORE DROP....OR CS PREP WOULD EVENTUALLY PROVE BENEFICIAL FOR CK
HELPPP!!!!

Mine is in Chicago,have already postponed CK for July 21st..u also take a date ryt now,coz its difficult to get a date later.
and also I will be starting serious CS prep from 5th june,so we can be study partners..
don't worry about the break for CS,we can always revise the tough parts in between..and I had absolutely no choice than to postpone ck coz I was not done with Uworld for paeds/Ob Gyn/ Surgery,was done with the rest. So iadvice u don't rush with ur Uworld.
