In brief: Ankle fracture

Yes..It may be disuse atrophy.
And, then again, it may be a torn ligament, capsuiitis, torn tendon....And so on. Go back and see your doctor. And get it checked out.

In brief: ?

Many times in a fx such as ur's a medial ligament tear goes undiagnosed soooo u need a 2nd opinion from an ankle specialist.
A tear may have been overlooked. Depends upon if this is the case & if 2 long since injury a primary repair may not b an option but if u r 2 far out, a reconstruction will b required. Seak out a good ankle surgeon, orthopedic.
