welcome to just answer
the swelling and bruising is because of the bleeding under skin caused by the injury
you need to continue applying cold compresses
should we go to the hospital - it is really swollen
and you can also give her an anti-inflammatory like ibuprofen (available over the counter)
is she able to swallow?
she is taking naproxen for her surgery
she just drank some water
she can open and shut her mouth
then there is no need to give her ibuprofen
she is already on an anti-inflammatory i.e. naproxen
how long has it been since the injury?
i dont know if she is dizzy from the ambien or falling
the dizziness is because of ambien and hydrocodone
did she loose conciousness after the injury?
ok should she just stay in bed
any bleeding from nose or ears or loss of conciousness after injury?
if yes, then she needs to see a doctor for head injury
but if no, then no need to worry
her swelling should decrease slowly in the next 12-24 hours
no but i will check her again right now please stay online
as long as she is able to swallow and there is no injury to teeth no need to worry

she is in bed with ice pack-swollen outward and brusing on her cheekbone - how to tell if cheekbone is broke?
