Hope all goes well and recovery is quick.
Hopefully that 5-7 day rest will get you back to normal. Good luck for a speedy recovery.
I have seen a relatively new, non-invasive, non medication treatment modality called "Airrosti" work wonders with people dealing with similar problems. I've referred many soccer players dealing with back, hip, and knee issues to a practitioner in this area that works with the Dallas Cowboys. Depending on where you live in Virginia, it might be an option worth looking into.

I am in no way a medical treatment provider, but have seen the positive results first hand with multiple cases representing all different age groups. Might be worth looking into.
Thanks guys for all the best wishes and advise. Into the second day of meds now. Seem to be helping already. I was at least able to sleep the night through last night, and made it out of bed on the first attempt! I know it will take some time for the inflammation to go away, and the pain meds are making it bearable now, dull ache vs sharp pain when trying to walk. I also picked up a cane when I picked up the meds from the pharmacy, figured having something to help take the weight off the leg when walking would help (plus it can be used defensively if needed).
Unfortunately the 3 days in bed isn't really an option. Wife has medical issues that pretty much keeps her for doing things around the house that I have been doing. No family in the area to help out either. Will keep the Chiropractor in mind. Will have to check with Tri-Care to see if they cover chiropractic services. I know I would have to have a referral from my Primary Care giver, not sure if he'll give a referral to a Chiropractor, I know a lot of MD's don't like them and won't refer someone to them.
I had 3 weeks vacation time and had thought about burning it off at Thanksgiving. For some reason I never got around to doing it. Glad now I didn't. I'll keep you advised on how things are going. Again, thanks for your thoughts.
