Hello, thanks for using HCM.
Its a pity you underwent that; i can imagine the pains you must be feeling from the description you have given.
Pain and swellings are indications of tissue affection and in your case, it is obviously the trauma you sustained. The worrying issue is the development of swellings and pains at the ankle region which leaves one worried if the ankle bones or ligaments were not affected. Ankle injuries are severe especially when its a bimalleolar fracture
. Ankle injuries are very common in cases where an individual misses a step or slips off, they are very painful and reduce the function of the ankle. If your ankle is hurting and you are more or less unable to use the ankle, it is very important you see a physician for an x-ray to rule out bimalleolar fracture.
However, with evolution as you described ( increasing pain and swelling ) it is better to see a physician for a better evaluation and an appropriate treatment plan.
