Ice off and on for the first 24 - 36 hrs, I usually try to do 15 to 25 mins on, then like 30 mins off, Elevated the whole time
Now you need to re-hydrate with some booze (can substitute Beer, but you'll get awfully cold while icing your foot), preferably straight i.e amaretto, rye (whiskey), scotch (i'm not a big scotch guy tho) etc.
its also very important to get your greens in you, smoke one every 2 or 3 TV shows (every hour or hour and a half), AGAIN... not so much that you lose your balance but not too little where you want to get off the couch
follow these steps and you'll be primed in no time flat
(p.s. above steps also cure a broken heart)
