How long would it take a fully grown man to recover from losing an eye in a violent matter? Not sure if it matters, but it would be 15th century level technology, as far as medicine and such. And by recover, I mean riding a horse, moving around, fighting, etc.
Also? He's kind of a sadist/masochist type character who doesn't mind pain too much, so if part of the answer deals with how much pain he'll be working through, that might make a difference.
Thanks for any knowledge shared.
