Would go back to doctor , you may need some additional support like air cast splint for a while longer Ask about any damage to the syndesmosis-could it be grade II or higher. Also though initial x-rays were negative may consider repeat x-rays as sometimes fractures can be missed on the initial films f/u/ w /doc.
