Hurt foot, swollen, got tetnus, painful, cannot put pressure on it. What to do?

I met an accident yesterday and hurt my foot, it got swollen like a goiter. I visited Doctor for xray and got tetnas plus painkiller injection. Xray shows no fracture and doctor said its normal but to take precautions for a month i.e. no pressure on the left feet and ankle. I applied ice pack on the swollen place yesterday night for an hour and then slept. today swelling has gone down about 30% but its still embossed. have placed ice pack thrice today for 1 hour each time, but still have pain and same swelling. Cant put pressure on that leg as it pains so walk with one leg jumping.

Need suggestions.

Thanks for writing to us.
The swelling and pain in the foot after an injury could be related to a bone injury in the area. This needs an X-ray examination for proper diagnosis. Till then avoid weight bearing on the foot.
