My Orthopedic doctor recommend surgery and he send me for physical theraphy I just when for my second day and it make fill better. But I basically been out from work in and out one week and half. My pain go away when Im seating and had very small discomfort when I sleeping. My therapist recommended sleep to my side and It work. Im very frustrated because my social life it getting push to the side. I basically go to work and come to home just to relax . And waiting for next day to come.
