Dear boobear,
due to the injury to the ankle there is going to be a tendency for swelling. What you can do is that for the time being stay at a job which does not have long standing hours. You can also apply a pressure bandage after consulting your orthopedician. Further, At the time of sleeping keep a pillow below your leg to elevate it.
