In brief: Many things
You will have a prolonged rehabilitation process, perhaps more pain and swelling, perhaps loss of function and a poor outcome.
You may heal, but you will not heal as well as with the therapy and may not be able to do what you would like down the road. Work with your doctor and therapist to be all that you can be without joining the militatry!
