How long should the swelling last on an ankle sprain?
I sprained my ankle 5 weeks ago today pretty bad. It was very swollen for a full week then the swelling started to go down. Since then the swelling has not gone down much more. I have pretty much no pain when walking, and I am walking as I was before the fall now. I just would have thought the swelling would have gone away before now, it still looks like a small egg on the side of my ankle. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what to do? Or was anyone in a similiar situation? How long did it take for your swelling to go away? Thanks so much!!!

I sprained my ankle and it took about two months for the swelling to go down and to heal completely...

sounds like you got it pretty good. I sprained mine really bad in the spring and the bruising went half up my leg even. The swelling can last quite awhile. As long as you are walking without problems I wouldn't worry. If the swelling becomes real bothersome just keep up with the ice.

everyone heals at a different rate, if you are worried see your GP, if you are just looking for some sort of time-span call them they might be able to advise you over the phone

You obviously have severe sprain. Sprains are traumatic injuries to the tendons, muscles or ligaments around the joints. Swelling and bruising are very common. However, the duration of swelling depends on the severity. I suggest you first go back to the doctor for more x-rays. In the meantime, you should rest your ankle by elevating you leg, hot and cold packs. first hot, then cold. general rule of thumb.
