Should i worry about swelling of 1 ankle & it feeling achy? It's hot where i live. I've been treated for deep vein thrombosis in past with surgery.

In brief: Dvt

i would recommend evaluation with venous doppler sonogram.
the heat issue is not responsible for swelling of one ankle, as that would affect both ankles.

In brief: You might...

Although with the heat, there tends to be some degree of swelling associated with that, your history of DVT (deep vein thrombosis) and 1 sided swelling (particularly if it is the side you had the dvt) is a bit of a concern.
If you haven't been followed up with recent doppler (ultrasounds) by your doc, you should consider having it checked.
