Ankle bone bruise: Sorry to hear. Generally, i'd recommend 2 months of recovery for a bone bruise although some people may take longer or shorter. Sometimes the swelling associated with this injury can take up to a year. Hope that helps.

Usually: Most bone bruises are healed in 3-4 weeks. If you didn't have an MRI or ct scan you might want to get those done. There could be more than contusion.
