removal of first pin in second toe dislocation and bunion surgery

Hello again. I just had a long pin removed from my second toe osteotomy. it was a long pin and there is a second one left to be removed. Although I hardly felt the pin removal, there is a lot of swelling now in all my toes and especially the ball of my foot. Has anyone had experience with this? I have been icing at the ankle, keeping my foot elevated as much as possible. I've been told to not get my foot wet at all so I have only been icing at the ankle. Has anyone iced at the ball of the foot? I am taking Tylenol and at night a codeine so I can sleep through this pain. Any ideas would be welcome. I am one month out of surgery and I have not been weight bearing this whole time. thanks, DeeDeeartist
