  • aww. . Im sorry to hear about that hun. .best thing I would think is to ask the doctor in charge how long it will take to heal and if there might be any future damage that it could have caused. The doctors cant lie to you about it so they have to tell you the truth. And if there is any kind of future damage that it could do I would speak to a lawyer espically if your the on that has to pay for medical bills.
