Swollen ankle

Posted by Paula A on 4/01/01 at hrmin (043275)

I have PF and had one cortizone shot that didn't work but
suddenly last Thursday my left ankle, the same one that
has the PF swelled up. After I got off work I iced it but
the swelling didn't go down. I called my Dr and tried to
get an appt but was told April 6th, so I called another
one, a podiatrist this time and the soonest I can get is
April 4th..I am icing and continuing to take Vioxx, is
there anything else I can do to get rid of the swelling?.
At work they let me be phone operator so I could be
off my feet and at home the past few days I've been
resting it..

Thanks for any help
