My routine is to ice it at least twice a day and to keep up on my Ibuprofen (per Dr. K's orders). I wear the boot when I'm out and about, but when at home I'm supposed to keep it unwrapped a little bit. I'm still wearing my ace bandage and my ER boot/sock they gave me to bed at night to protect my foot a little bit!! I'm still nervous to stand on it, it was scary enough to stand on it to get my pants on and off, not quite ready to be on it for long periods of time. So for now my friends are my walking boot, ace bandage, ER boot, crutches and ice!
People say sprains tend to be more painful then broken bones and I am beginning to believe it.
