On the bright side, you have a frozen water bottle in your hand to treat your foot right away. You just saved yourself another visit to the doctor.

Plus it wouldn't have hurt as much because OP's foot should be partially numb from already being iced.

I read the first 7 words and was like WTF!!?! And then I read the whole thing, everything makes more sense now!!

I don't know if the doctor specifically told you to use a bottle of water but if not I would definitely go for a frozen bag of peas or something more flexible to fit the shape of the afflicted area, fyl though thats just bad luck...

I've broken and/or sprained a foot more than once and have used all the above methods. Frozen water bottles are great for some breaks/rehabs. As for the peas... reminds me of the old genetics joke: "Brother Mendel, we grow tired of peas."

A frozen water bottle? What quack told you to do that? You're supposed to use an ice cold BEER bottle. Take off the cap and apply the beer directly to your mouth. Doctor's orders.

That's what I said to the ortho, Doc! Sadly, he expained that if I mixed alcohol and serious pain meds, I could break a lot more than my foot.
