Good lord. That sucks. Have they given you an expected recovery plan/path?

It happened like 2 months ago, just went to the doctor earlier today as the pain hadn't gone away, they said 2 weeks of pain management, if that doesn't work, physical therapy, if that doesn't work, surgery (I refuse to take opiates, as that was the step recommended after physical therapy).

Yeah, avoid opiates where possible. I’ve had opiate/opioid complications crop up with several family members. Plus, I have lived with someone in withdrawal (weaning off an originally sorely-needed pain med) and it is no picnic for anyone involved.

Still, hoping one of the 1st two steps works out.

Aye. This mild pain med is working very well, it says take it every 12 hours, but it's been 20 hrs and it's just wearing off.

Anytime you can be less dependent on the meds is a bonus.
