Re: Broken Ankle - 3 places

I broke both ankles ... ice only in first 24 hours after injury to prevent swelling..after that ice is will make your joints ache, Keep ankle warm with dry heat packs for pain. percocets will constipate you, sweet prunes will help. keep foot up ,blood rushing to the foot only hurts injured tissue , percs are hard on the liver. save for last resort
