Heat packs and time: Healing is promoted by blood flow which can be enhanced with warmth and continued good health and exercise. Don't smoke and give it some time. Your body will reabsorb the fluid. Some compression to the area or a pillow to lift your bottom when you're sleeping may help the fluid travel back up. Good luck!
