Advil/ibuprofen should help w/ the swelling, elevation is a must, keep it elevated as much as possible. Ice should help w/ the swelling as well, I was told, 20 mins on 20 mins off w/ the ice. Stiff boots would give more support when you are ready to get back on it, but remember to listen to your body, if it's too painful, give it more rest. You can get a splint or ace bandage at the drug store pretty cheaply (I got one for around 10 bucks when I sprained my ankle) and that should help w/ the compression part of the RICE advice.
