broken heel

I fell off a ladder 6 days ago and am waiting for the swelling to go down still…. I didn’t elevate it properly for the first 3 days so I see why it is still swollen….Now That I am elevating it, it seems to be getting a little better… however, if I get up to go to the bathroom, I can feel an instant rush to the area and severe pain sets in…. When I elevate again it gets better….. I am concerned of maybe “Compartment Syndrome” is the problem… I know this can be serious!! Any suggestions!?? My doctor wont be back for 3 days….
