Your pain will improve slowly over months.
The first two weeks are the toughest for everyone. Walker for 2-4 weeks then a cane and that is usually done by 6 weeks. Some go back to work at 4-8 weeks. Formal therapy for 6-12 weeks. Pain varies. Narcotics usually for 3-12 weeks. Most activity by 12 weeks but stiff with little aches for months. 12-18 months for complete recovery. Great relief at end.
