I sprained my ankle 6 months ago and it still hasn't fully healed. Should I be worried?

I went to the doctor not to long ago and had my ankle checked and she said to stay off my foot and let it heal. It has already been 6 months. I was actually just getting back into running and noticed some swelling. I dont want to lose my foot or anything. What should I do?

    A sprain takes much longer to heal than a break. When running wear an ankle support. Mine was weak for a couple of years.

    Ligaments take a very long time to heal.
