Toe slipped with twist in right ankle, causing sprain. Have painful bruise and itchiness. Is it a normal recovery?

I ran a obstacle course mud race this last weekend and slipped off of an obstacle. It was made of 2x4 planks of wood and I fell forwards when my toe slipped off (it was a downward sloped ladder type). I managed to twist my right ankle resulting in a sprain and hit my left shin on the edge of the 2x4 rung. It developed a large lump immediately and was scrapped pretty bad and was painful. I had it cleaned and iced by the aid station and the swelling went down some. Now, it is bruising , painful, itchy, and still swollen (4 days later). Is this normal recovery?

Hi Dear
Welcome to the Health Care Magic.
Yes; it appears to be normal recovery provided it is being treated under the supervision of some orthopedic surgeon.
Usually in sprain injury the muscle fibers,tendons,nerves, vessels and other surrounding tissues are damaged. so they take some time for the recovery.
Hope your query is answered
Thanks all are damaged
