What can I do if I've had a fractured bone in my leg and I am having severe swelling and bruising in my ankle?

See a specialist. I am not sure from your description if these two issues are occurring at same time. I would highly recommend you see your primary care doctor, a podiatrist or orthopedist for thorough evaluation.
