Ever since I got my surgical cast off I have tried the icing with elevation. I place a folded towel between my ankle and the ice bag and after about ten minutes I can tell you exactly where my hw is. It gets freezing cold and is thereby painful! So, now I just elevate and take ibuprofen for pain. Has anyone else had this happen?
