Re: my ankle is still swollen after six weeks
6 weeks after a sprain it's possible your tendons and ligaments are still healing. I agree with JaneWhite. Ice, elevate, see orthopedist or podiatrist. Other things to try include OTC NSAIDs (ibuprofen or Aleve, NOT Tylenol or aspirin) and a compression sock. If you can work with your employer to reduce how much you have to stand at work, that might help.
