Varies

Forearm_fractures
In an average healthy person, the fracture will likely heal within 6-8 weeks. However, the sports functionality of the ankle may not return to normal for nearly 6-12 months. This depends on the severity of the initial injury and the subsequent rehab of the ankle. Your orthopedist will guide you through your recovery process.

How long does it take a broken ankle to heal? It's been almost two months and I'm still in tremendous pain.

Varies

It depends on how serious of a fracture you sustained, how it was treated, and how compliant you were with your doctor's orders. Did you have surgery to repair the break or were you placed in a cast? Did you stay off the foot? Severe pain after 2 months is not common, but it may depend on specifics. i recommend you follow up with your specialist who can better assess the healing process.
