See below: I would try using a compression sock to help push the fluid out. But may have created such a severe injury that you will always have swelling of the tissue.

Ankles unstable: Most ankle sprains heal uneventfully, however many are undertreated leaving a percentage of patients with "streched out" ligaments and instability. If MRI is normal this is likely an instability issue. This can be treated with bracing or surgical repair of the ligaments.
