Thanks for the reply. would you agree that advil will
benefit healing in this case?

I did get a second opinion and am more concerned now
because they contradict each other on one major point.

First Dr said to immobilize it for 2 weeks; had me in
an air cast and crutches.

Second Dr said it is a common rolled ankle injury.
Recommend loosing the cast and - pain permitting -
mobilize it and begin therapeutic exercises to promote
proper healing. He suspects the ligament(s) may be
completely torn and yet will reattach without
intervention.

Both have ruled out a fracture and recommend advil and
ice. I know the body has powerful healing ability but
can it really reattach severed ligaments? would you
side with the dr claiming rest and stabilization or
the with mobility and therapy?
