    That's excellent news, Sue, and thank you for sharing it with us. I, too, can only think of ice packs (frozen peas wrapped in a towel - not put directly onto your foot). Take care, both of you. (((())))

    Oh Sue, what a relief that there is nothing seriously wrong. I find cold good for reducing swelling and I also sit with my legs up and a cushion or pillow underneath my knees. I hope the swelling soon reduces - are you on any anti-inflammatory medicine? Hugs to you and Joan. DD

    Hi Sue
    I am so glad its not broken, but still they can be so painful, I would try and rest it has much as possible.
    Hope it improves very soon x

    Hi Sue

    (Hi Joan)

    So glad there wasn't a break they had missed, but that still leaves you swollen up and unable to bear weight on that foot :(

    I expect you've already tried it, but l think elevate it and anti-inflams if you have some and it's ok with other meds - have you tried ice?
