Last February I did a number on my right ankle. I ended up fracturing one side and sprained the other (broke off some fragments on one side but was told they wouldn't be an issue during healing). I ended up not needing surgery but had it set and put in a removable boot. I was non weight bearing for 3-4weeks and took the boot off by week 6. Now a year post injury I'm dealing with consistent swelling in that ankle joint (it resembles a baseball 24/7). Because of how swollen it remains, even during inactivity, I can't tell if it's swelling more than usual, but i def experience flare ups of pain and aching. Im not sure if this is normal or if the constant swollen state and pain is something I should have looked at again. I just hate going to the dr to be told to do something that I'm already actively doing (icing/elevation).
