Our expert says:
Although you say that your left leg is fine, it is probably still damaged because you say the ankle is very swollen. This is probably not water retention, but inflammation. Water retention would make both legs swell up. If you have not yet seen a medical doctor for a checkup of your left leg, please make an appointment ASAP. You may have torn your ligaments or broken a bone in your leg or foot which should receive medical treatment.
