Takes many months for healing, and swelling to remit. If there is a question of occult bone dysfunction, a triple phase bone scan might be in order just to be complete. But time and patience with ongoing PT will provide eventual success.

Your injury is a concern. You have a complete rupture and a partial rupture of two out of the three ligaments supporting the lateral ankle. Therefore the only thing protecting and stabilizing your ankle joint are your muscles. Surgical considerationMight be warranted if conservative therapy fails
