Pitting edema around ankles one week after ankle injury. No pain, just discomfort, causes whole foot to swell after standing. Treatment options?

In brief: Common

Injuries disrupt the flow of the lymphatics.
This results in swelling. It is only temporary. Solution: Co-band wrap or Ace-wrap for ~1week and, keep using it (unless real painful) [if bruising, you may need an x-ray]
