No problem, thanks for the update! I talked to my doctor about the pain and swelling, and was prescribed Meloxicam
, 15mg per day (it's an NSAID). So far, it's reduced the pain a good amount, but there is still a good amount of aching and the swelling hasn't gone down much, from what I can tell. She said I could occasionally take ibuprofen along with Meloxicam if I really felt the need to. I do have some heating pads, so I'll try those as well.
Thanks again, everyone!
