He described enjoying your ankle. It went through the discoloration stage with swelling. This has all gone away except for the swelling. But you are still able to walk on the ankle without pain. But you are still have swelling that continues. Initiate Contrast bath therapy. Soak in hot water for three minutes then an ice water for one minute five times in each. Once or twice a day
