Hello,

I broke my ankle a week ago. I am scheduled for surgery a little over a week from now. However, I'm having a lot of trouble getting the swelling to go down. I am elevating as much as possible. I cannot put ice on it because of the splint. I am taking Motrine 2-3x a day. Is there anything else I can do? I'm nervous because my surgeon said if the swelling doesn't go down she might have trouble closing the wound during the surgery
