In brief: About 1 week

Surgeon should tell or have told you if you have already had surgery.
Compressive dressing is best. Ice pack may help. Should be on ibuprofen &/or Tylenol (acetaminophen) both as pain killer & anti-inflammatory agent. Also depends upon your job. More time if you are on your feet & active all the time. Good Luck
