I had surgery (a Brostrom) performed on the 1/16, and my swelling is still pretty bad -- worse now than it was in the surgical cast (I'm in a regular fiberglass cast now). The past few days I've had to literally spend the entire day on the couch with my foot extremely elevated because if I didn't, my ankle and foot would swell up like a balloon causing severe tightness in my cast and pain. I've been taking ibuprofen regularly, and icing as much as I can, a challenge since I only have 1 ice pack...but is there anything else I could be doing to help this?
