Another football injury collected yesterday. Don't think anything is broken, but it's swollen and plenty painful.

[edit] I did score though, which was the first goal I've scored in about 10 years!!

Actually brings tears to my eyes just to look at it. Hope you feel better soon. Arnica?

By the way, sorry for the multiple posts last night - I only have the phone for internet at home just now and apparently Sprint borks comments so no commenting on the phone. I am at work just now - got here early just so I could apologize! Hopefully we'll have internet at home soon.

No worries at all. I saw that there was a double post and then a double double double post and just figured that moblog was having a funny turn last night :)

It's doesn't hurt much as long as I don't touch it or walk on it, which makes driving quite a painful experience. Hopefully it'll be fine in a few days though.

Salome, what's Arnica?

Arnica is good herbal stuff, for soft tissue injuries of all types. You can take it internally in a very small homeopathic dose, or you can get a gel or lotion to rub on bruises and such. I discovered it when I got in a nasty little car wreck a few years ago and was bruised all over, it really did help the bruises fade faster. I've been told not to get it in open wounds though - it can irritate the underlying tissues and actually slow healing, plus it stings like the dickens.

Cheers for the info, I'd never heard of it. I'll see how the bruising and swelling goes, which currently seems to be in the right direction, and if it gets worse I'll try some out. Thanks again :)

Yeah arnica cream is great for bruises and clears up my trapeze rope burns and bruises just in time for me to get more the next week.
I'm a bit dubious about the tablets but I know people that swear by them.
Try yr local Neal's Yard or Napiers for the cream. Nelsons do a good one.

Suggest Ibuprofen, a spot of strapping to help with the driving, followed by elevation & icepacks in the evening. Main thing is to promote healing by reducing swelling & Ibuprofen, if you can take it, has the happy bonus of being an analgesic.

It seems to be getting a bit better now. The swelling is going down slightly and the bruising comes out in various different places on my foot and then disappears, but I don't bruise very much anyway.

I've been quite lucky in that I haven't needed to take any painkillers other than the odd beer or two, but driving has been a bit awkward. But trapeze rope burns? They sound nasty things to get!!

Ah, it's worth it when you do 'the angel' and feel like the girl in Wings of Desire though.

Sounds impressive. You should blog it sometime :)

So, how long did it take to get better?

It took me just short of seven weeks before I was able to kick a ball and play football again. It's still not quite right now and feels a bit funny, but it doesn't hurt so much anymore.
