Ooh! Sorry to hear about the foot.

Intrinsic foot exercises & taping were probably the two most helpful things for me. Taping is especially helpful for protecting the foot if you're still running. I've also found a compression sleeve on the foot helpful.

Also, massage the heck out of your calf with foam roller.

Or get Alex to massage your calf- she is brutal & effective, especially when she's drunk :).
