I sprained my left ankle & chipped my ankle bone on 12/29. A soft cast was placed on it. I was asked to keep it elevated & iced for a week. On 1/4, a stabilizing boot(some big black boot with velcro staps). I was asked to continue to elevate & ice ,because it's still tender & swollen. Do I keep this boot on when I'm not icing or only when I'm leaving the house & I'm I suppose to be putting weight on it, because I'm still using the crutches. And approximately how long will it take to completely heal.
