    I got nailed in the right bicep by a southpaw throwing a hook, while i was throwing a straight right. It's bad. I've had it compressed and elevated and periodically iced in the last 4 hours since it happened, but this isn't lookin like it's gonna go away tomorrow or even the next day. Can anyone help me on my recovery? I have a fight in 11 days and stop training in 9, and i still desperately need this last week to train. I'm a boxer so just working other things isn't really an option.

    NOTE: If you do NOT have medical background or have NOT had this injury, please do NOT risk my athletic future with something you "think might work."

    You're doing the right things. Ice, elevation, compression. You might consider also alternating ice with heat. You could consider taking some moderate doses of ibuprofin (600 mg every 6 hours or so). There's not much else you can do for that sort of injury. The fact that it hasn't gotten better in the 4 hours since the injury is no indication of how it's going to feel tomorrow. Most likely you'll feel much better, and you'll find that you are able to work off the soreness.

    You're in the wrong part of town then. Go see a doctor or talk to your coaches.

    Also, I'm afraid Zerocrew might be right. Go get tested.
