Now I've started taking Diltiazem Tildiem again, how long will it take for the ankle/leg swelling to go? Anything I can do to stop it/help it?

In brief: Again?

You say "again". Did you take it before.
Why was it stopped? Did it help the swelling before (the tildiem (HCTZ) is a mild diuretic.) Keep your legs elevated as much as possible and avoid salt as best you can to accelerate recovery. If it doesn't work, you may need a stronger med.
