You might just want to bring the swelling up to your doc at your next scheduled visit, but as far as I've been told, ankle swelling isn't a big deal... just try and elevate your feet (above head level) when you can - like lying on the couch or something in the evening.

The swelling becomes a problem when your hands swell excessively and your face swells... it would have a tendency to come on quickly is what I've been told.
