- Chronicity 6-18 Months
broke my ankle August 2015 in 3 places with a dislocation. Surgeon says worse end of the spectrum regarding ankle breaks. I'm hobbling with a crutch and sometimes wear the moonboot / camboot. I too have swelling and wear a Tubi grip. I keep the right leg elevated when at home sitting and sometimes with ice. I've heard it can take 1-2 years to be rid of the swelling if you're lucky. I'm not yet back at work as I have a highly active physical job. I'm nearly 60.
