Time to heal: Likely nothing serious is wrong. If you are able to do normal daily activities, walking for example, without difficulty, you likely just need more time to heal. The only caveat to that would be if you have point tenderness when touching your ankle, it would be a good idea to follow up with the doctor you saw who ordered the MRI to assure there in no chronic problem limiting your recovery.

If symptoms persist consider seeing a physical medicine doctor with skill in musculoskeletal ultrasound. The muscles and tendons regions that are giving you trouble can be evaluated in "real time" as you show what positions give you pain. This can provide invaluable information for treatment.

More important: Would be peroneal strengthening excercises, but if still painful get reevaluated.

Have it evaluated.: Ankle pain following and injury may last a long time. The pain may be due to a fracture, sprains, arthritis, or a soft tissue injury involving the tendon, ligaments or nerves . Have the foot evaluated so that you may get the appropriate care.
