I was reading a little while ago that lataest research has shown that although putting ice on muscle injuries does reduce the initial swelling, it slows down the healing. I put ice on it for a short time, just to try to keep the swelling down a bit.
Hope it heals quickly, less than two days & I'm bored already.

Well it musta have changed big time since I had serious ligament and tendon damage, because I was put through 8hrs of hell for five days for a week with ice to numbness and then exercise till the pain started coming back and then ice till it was numb and repeat. Then the following week was 4hrs a day. :unsure:

Here you go Foo, some information on the latest thinking Why You Shouldn't Do RICE for Sprains
I had my first aid certificate for around 20 years & was always tought to use the Rest Ice Compression Elevation method, but things change.

I wasn't elevating, I was exercising and re numbing. I've posted it on my bike page and await comments from others. But you are right, thinking and methods do change over the ages. ;)

Things change alright..
After my second shoulder opperation I was told only to wear a sling if needed for comfort..
My wfe had the same procedure 3 years ago and was told she even had to sleep with one on.

Not being able to stay in bed and sleep, gave up at 2am. 🤬 All the stuff that I've been researching keeps bombarding me, along with random dreams and thoughts. 🤬

I just got out of bed by choice to go fishing. Heading 2.5hrs north this morning. Not sure why I keep doing it to myself, weather's looking a bit dodgy too.

Change of plans.. Weather is looking wet until about lunch time so heading 1.5hrs east to Walker Flat on the mighty Murray River, weather is looking better there. I've got the big comp for the year there next weekend so figure i should get there for a reccy run before the pre fish ban starts on Sunday night.

When what you think will be an easy and cheap fix for a trolley but when you go to weld a bracket onto it, you blow through the tube because it's to old and thin. Now need to go buy a new one and also a new welding helmet. 🤬 :poop:

Trolleys are cheap, get an electronic helmet, great for part time welders.

This hormone/chemo stuff I’m on. Mood swings and ‘filter’ seem to be disorganised.

Interest side effect. Clash with the tenant on the cards then, well more than normal?

I’m being careful. Road rage on the other hand. I do keep the windows up and only interact with myself.
