My initial injury occurred on Tuesday August 7th at 630pm. Today is Thursday August 9th at 5pm. We are approaching 48hours, but on the third week day.
The majority of swelling occurs at 42-72 hours.
I have the appropriate sleeping remedies bed side in case my pain begins to increase. I have extra ice packs in the fridge and have started putting traumeel on my foot topically. With constant ice and appropriate naturopathic remedies, I seem to be doing fine. I have been diligent about staying away from sugar, alcohol and inflammatory foods such as potatoes, gluten, corn and dairy. And tonight I will make myself a soothing surgery tape.
