HelloCustomer

You might need to get the xrays repeated as sometimes the fracture can be missed.

Wrap your ankle in an ace wrap but not too tight to cut off the circulation.

Elevate as much as possible.

You can try heat alternating with ice packs,.

You need to call your doctor though because you might need to see an orthopedist or at least get crutches to be able to stay off of it.

Best Wishes,
