In brief: Get an xray

you should probably get this looked at and get an x-ray.
An orthopedic or put electric surgeon could help you. There are many ligaments to the ankle and foot. They all need to be evaluated. If an x-ray doesn't show a problem, you may need an MRI or a CT scan. It could be an ankle sprain or a syndesmotic injury or a Lisfranc injury or an undiagnosed fracture.

I am assuming Dr. Wilkin meant a podiatric surgeon "put electric"(auto correct).

In brief: Need reevaluation

Go back to your orthopedic surgeon , for re-evaluation of injury further study , for ligament tare , joint displacement , lateral malleolar injury etc , some times need surgery
