That sounds even worse than my DH's situation. He didn't have nearly that long of a surgery and only 1 or 2 pins and a plate. The pain is the worst pain anyone can experience, from what I've heard. Won't he be able to get around on crutches? That's how my DH got around. He started a new job just 3 weeks after his surgery! It is going to be very hard on you, but as I said, you can do it. I am here for you anytime. I totally understand what you are going through. Good luck to you both.
