    I don't know but it sounds like you need to see a doctor, swelling in the leg and foot could mean anything.

    Good luck I hope everything turns out alright.

    Have you gone to a doctor to find out if you now have a kidney disorder. Or diabetes. Both can cause swollen ankles. Kidney disorders cause proteinuria, so your urine is tested. Diabetes is found on a blood test.

    Hopefully, you don't have these disorders.

    Maybe a doctor will discover why you are swelling (edema) in your ankles. This is not normal.
