3-6 months: This is a tough injury. It basically means you have torn the ligament between the two bones of your lower leg, the tibia and fibula, from the ankle to near your knee. At this point, bone healing is occurring, and swelling should be improving. However, some aching, swelling and discomfort may continue for several months, even up to a year or more. Be patient with this.
