Post Swollen leg

Hi - I am new to this forum and looking for some feedback. I severely sprained my right ankle about 4 months ago and am still in the process of recovery. I continue to wear a brace or bandage to help with pain and also as support. On Wednesday I was injected with cortisone at the site of the sprain and yesterday noticed that my leg was swollen up to the knee - thought my bandgage might have been too tight and removed it. However, this morning the leg is still swollen even after rest although it has gone down. My ankle is still very swollen and walking is painful. I was wondering if the cortisone could have cause my leg to swell or is this just a continuing part of the healing process or is something else wrong? There is no pain in my leg - only in my ankle. Anyone have any feedback?

Increased swelling is not part of the healing process. Something is wrong since you got the cortisone shot so you need to see the doc and get this checked in the AM.
