I am sorry to hear your cat hurt herself.

Tramadol lasts about 12 to 24 hours in cats usually, so it should be worn off by now. The recommended dose for a 13 pound cat would be 1/4 of a pill (12.5 mg) once to twice daily.

If she is eating, I am not too worried about her being dehydrated from not drinking. I can't find that not drinking is a side effect of tramadol. I expect she will start to drink on her own.

Please let me know how she is doing and what other questions I can answer.
