Hello, your ankle swelling and outer foot pain suggest probably you had inversion injury. It's almost a year now so if any bony fracture was there it must have healed or gone into non union or mal union. I advise you to take the issue seriously and have a clinical check up and a X-ray foot with ankle AP and lateral view. Thank you
