OCD foot surgery today

I had OCD arthroscopic surgery this morning, now I am reading all the forums.....Great advice! But does anyone know how long swelling will be? Dr. removed a "sizable" piece of fractured bone and cartlidge. Then he wrapped, and wrapped, and wrapped my rt foot and leg with gauze and more gauze. Not kidding. In the splint until the 20th, then don't know what is next. First time for foot surgery for me.
Any advice? Anyone have this surgery?

Re: OCD foot surgery today

My suggestion is for the first 5 days you should elevate for at least 22 hours per day and ice often. Try to get "toes above the nose" using pillows or cushions or recliner chair. If you can't ice the ankle directly because of the wrappings, ice back of knee where the blood vessels are.
