Hello there... dont worry its common swelling process following your trauma.... it must be minor swelling ... keep doing icing every 2 hrs ... if you have a crepe bandage put it over foot and lower part of feet with proper preassure... while doing icing you may remove it and again put it.... while sleeping keep the leg over a pillow or two so as to keep it elevated....you may use cold pain relieving sprays.... i usually dont recommend applying heat or heat producing gels for 72 hrs following traumatic swelling. Hope this helps you...do feel free to ask any furthur queries. Regards Take care.
