It depends on where you are being treated - in the private sector orthopods may be more aggressive by packing the bone with some of your pelvic bone if there is no infection - I think they would want the holes from the Hoffman to heal first, in the academic or provincial sector they may want to be more conservative and give it longer time to heal on its own. Ask your doctor about Tramal as alternative to what you are taking for pain now?
It may help to take Vit C, vit D, Calcium supplements and to stop smoking if you are smoking. Hyperbaric oxygen chamber treatment may also help but is expensive.
