You may have something else going on in your ankle such as instability (looseness), loose bodies, a cartilage lesion, or scar tissue that is causing swelling and flui accumulation within your ankle joint.
Further or initial orthopaedic evaluation is warranted.

If you still have swelling three months after your injury, it is possible that you have a fracture in your ankle that has gone unrecognized.
I would suggest seeing an orthopaedic doctor for appropriate x-rays and physical exam, .
