Thank for choosing HCM, Right now you should immobilized your leg, x-ray is require, it can be said that soft tissue inflammation is there but still any fracture part to bone sructure, should be ruled out, till then do not try to walk or put a weight on it. it may worsen the injury, keep the leg elevated, have anti-inflammatory drug, it may take a couple of week to heal without fracture & if fracture is there then it could take 3 to 4 weeks ( Depend upon the nature of fracture, & procedure applied ) till then take good care of your ankle, Good Day
