wait a minute WHAT HAPPENED EXACTLY?
I falled off my Coker, had a big bruise (hurting like mad), still walked
went to the G.P. doctor 3 days after , he said “ho a big bruise … no problem”.
Then I continued walking for two weeks … until I ended up in the emergency ward with phlebitis and a broken Achille’s tendon (yes you can walk with a broken Achille’s tendon! I am a living proof of it).
So: beware a bad bruises that last for long … (but could be just a big bruise :o )
(another big bruise was just a broken toe … but don’t be alarmed: I am unlucky!)
I sprained my ankle pretty good back when I was on my college cross country team. They had me soak my ankle in an ice cold tub for 20 minutes while using my toes to draw out the alphabet. It seemed to help regain my range of motion quicker. RICE is the thing to do…
