A good ice pack for any part of the body, I have found is if you take rice and fill a ziploc baggie, not full, leave enough room to mold and shift hte rice, and then put it in the frezer. It seems like the rice tends to hold the cold in for longer! Just a thought.
I completely agree about the gel packs. I dont know how they work for incisions. I lived by those gel packs, until one busted in my hair..lol..i guess it was time to replace it, it took me a week to get the goo out of my hair...lol
