    He advised me that if the pain in my neck is / was bearable...

    Dr Tan told me that my C1 vertebra had fractured and dislodged, but he was not in favour of an operation, as it could cause me to be paralysed or partially paralysed. He advised me that if the pain in my neck is / was bearable, I should live with it.

    Should I use 'is' or 'was'? The accident happened recently.

    Thanks.

    Both versions are acceptable.
