You'll be in significant pain for a solid 2+ months after your surgery and for the first 2 weeks the pain is near unbearable (just being honest).

I feel for you man. I know I just spelled out bad stuff, but its better to know than not to know. You'll get through it.
Oh Woody. I've missed your Shakey avatar and the taste of brooooodwhich.

That depends, some people don't have any pain from that. I had surgery to repair a meniscus tear in my knee, and I was told I would be in pain for a long time afterwards, even right after waking up from the operation. But I didn't feel any pain at all, ever. Even waking up from the surgery was as if nothing happened.

They gave me some kind of powerful opiate and some other stuff, but I didn't take a single pill of anything except the antibiotics. Couldn't walk or run for a few months of course, and moving my leg around too much before proper healing resulted in a very dull and hardly noticeable short lived (e.g. seconds) pain, just enough to tell me that I shouldn't do what I was about to do, but it was pain easily avoided.

If I had bailed, I'd probably have just had a few scrapes and bruises...and I've bailed off my previous bikes in the past, so it's something that would have come naturally to me, thus I'm sure I must have thought I could save it.
If you didn't bail on the bike, either you had a malfunction, or someone pulled out/over into your lane. It's a natural reaction to bail whenever you KNOW you're going down.
