For how long did you have swelling?

Posted , 2 users are following.

Well it's been 8 months since my awful ankle sprain, and I still have moderate swelling. I left using ankle binder 3 months ago after my doc n PT advised me to. But now even after a little bit of walking, swelling increases. I've reduced the amount of repetitions in physio exercises, as that might be the cause of increased swelling. Is this normal to have swelling after 8 months?
