eventer Bruising between sesamoids!!!!!

i Have a 16.2 tb x wb who i event currently at pre-novice.... during the winter he sustained a field injury. He pulled or strained between his sesamoids and was very lame. he was on box rest for 3 weeks. At the end of his box rest, my vet came out to scan him again and all was much better, he then trotted him up and he was perfectly sound.

My vet advised me to bring him back into work slowly and just see how he feels. He has now been back in work for 6-7 weeks ... being perfectly sound ... i have been xc schooling him on fairly firm going, and his leg seems to be holding up, .... although....

there is always heat in the fetlock joint, somedays more than others.i have been icing it and cold water hosing it everytime its hot, or when iv done anything strenuous with him.
does anyone know what i should do? should i keep going and just see what happens? take it easy and continue icing and hosing?
im in a bit of a pickle about it as he is a very good horse with a very bright future.. so is extremely precious!! :(

he has his first event of the season on saturday ... only an intro and i plan to just hack around the xc if the going is soft enough.. if not i shall not attempt to run him xc and stick to the dressage and sj.

if anyone knows of anything i can do .. your help would be muchly apreciated
