In brief: For Sure

After this type of surgery any of the commonly used narcotic based medications can be used.
This would similar to using pain medication after any type of significant broken bone. Keep in mind that pain would get better over time after surgery. His most uncomfortable 12 hours will be the first 12 hours, the most painful day the first day, the most painful week, the first week afterwards.

In brief: Yes

Homeopathic arnica 30c or 200c three times a day will help with bruising and pain.
He will still need pain medication! also homeopathic symphtyum 30c or 200c daily for 14 days will help the bones heal. Acupuncture as an outpatient will substantially help with pain. Hypnosis can also diminish pain. Ask if they have that in the hospital...
