I had to pull out of an mma fight this week because of bruising to my calve and ankle. Ha I win baddest bruise award.
I know what some of you are thinking, a silly bruise? The second my doc saw it (which was 5 days after the bruise formed), he sent me to get work done ASAP. He was real worried about it. My calve was so swollen, I could barley put pants on because my calve wouldnt fit in bottom of the pants. Real fun.
I suggest ice for the first few days and then heat. Thats what my doc had me do for over a week, and Im still doing it.
