Perhaps unusual question - knowingly not finishing a race?

Hi! DH and I are registered for the 2014 full. About halfway through training, a life-long problem of mine flared up. I'm seeing ortho regularly, PT, etc and getting injections - but we're unsure how things will look come January.

My "rules" allow me to do what doesn't hurt. Sometimes that's a bit of running, walking is usually ok but it's time-prohibitive to train to walk the full at this point.

I plan to keep doing what I can to keep moving...
But am well aware that it will take the perfect storm of intervention, time, and God deciding I don't need surgery yet in order to finish

I still want to start, for the atmosphere and to support DH who is training his butt off. I'm not at all worried about pacing out of the race, but if I have to stop because it's otherwise time... what happens?

Are the "sweepers" something I'll see if I sit on a curb somewhere? Will they care to pick me up, and where do I go? Is it more advisable to seek out a med tent?

Sorry if this sounds ridiculous. I'm not willing to push an injury too far, but also not interested in transferring to 2015.

Any suggestions for the-one-who-hates-not-knowing-exactly-what-to-expect?
