Swelling after Ankle Sprain

My husband was diagnosised with a grade 2 ankle sprain from rolling it playing volleyball. His only instructions were to take NSAIDs and do RICE, which he did. It has now been 7 weeks and his ankle swelling has come down, but is still swollen. How long will the swelling persist? Thanks!

Re: Swelling after Ankle Sprain

Swelling with any orthopedic injury can last quite a while but I would have him see his doc just in case. Severe swelling can hide a small fracture and he may need to have another set of x-rays just to make sure.

Better to be safe than sorry.

good luck..............Jenny(21 orthopedic surgeries and counting)
