Sleeping will be an issue. Sleeping in a sling is tough too. He has gabapentin for nerve pain, ketorolac for anti-inflammatory, Extra Strength Tylenol for pain too, and baby aspirin for clots. His pain level is still low but he's not 24 hours out. I know it will be painful.... we can call for the real stuff if needed but he is anti opioids. His buddy had ligament surgery on Tuesday and he also declined opioids.
With the scary stuff going on out there in the world those of us who have kids who try to avoid taking prescription painkillers as much as possible are very fortunate.
Good luck to your son on his recovery.
