DD has sprained her ankle on saturday and it is very swollen and she cant walk.

it has not broken (have had xray at A&E) but is huge and starting to bruisesad.
she is only 5yo and feeling very sorry for herself, keeping her off school tomorrow and hopefully it will be ok soon.

any idea how long it might take to get better?

Not sure how long it will take to heal but the treatment that you give it during the first 48 hours can make a huge difference. Ice it with frozen peas.Wrapped in a towel so she does not get an ice burn.I would get her to school it will keep her occupied and she will love the attention smile
