    A: just one. But she works one floor down so I get a near-daily reminder to be humble

    he said " Long as you can stand it, I used to submerge entire rugby players in the ice bath the day after a match " and said something about writing a paper on the use of ice to speed up healing so I did the ice and it worked

    So last week I sprained the ankle, it wasn't getting better fast enough so the last 2 days I been sticking my foot in a beer cooler with 6 " of water a couple trays of ice and its defintaly helped ... a good sports med tip
    Careful with that--I had a college sprinter whose coach had her soak her legs in ice water for too long and had severe persistent pain.

    Pro tip--if this surgeon is this busy he's on his 3rd, much younger, hot wife who's very lonely.

    I tried the gel for an ankle issue from work... not sure it helped much. The oral version (diclofenac) was quite effective but I found meloxicam just as effective and easier (once a day) and has a lower frequency of GI bleeds and GI upset ( the most common side effects of NSAIDs)

    I'm on the meloxicam. Don't know much about it. Was on two/day for about 2 weeks post op and now down to one a day with dinner. Decided to try the cream this morning on my knee and I think it helped. Mom had a bottle she bought at a french pharmacy and said try this. Bottle is all in french %2.

    Surgery was to fix a fibula fracture BTW and I tweaked my MCL pretty good in the same crash.
