I had a bad fall last Wednesday, my hip and lower back have been in bits since. However, I'm in the process of moving house and my Dad is coming to help with my stuff this coming wednesday. I'm not taking any meds but the night ones so I can stay alert enough to pack, but with my hip so sore I'm going really slowly.
I don't know, would taking 1 day off totally allow you to recover enough to get back to it properly? Or just do the small light stuff and leave all lifting til your dad can help?
If its really properly serious can you afford to pay a company to do it (I assume not if you're relying on your dad, or maybe he just offered?) Not aware of any other options aside from calling in favours... Taking strong painkillers so you can go full tilt through manual work would probably cause you to do further damage.
