Why does gout swelling in my ankle linger like this?

I had my worst gout attack ever, 2 weeks ago now. It focused around my ankle bones on my left foot. It was so bad I did not sleep for a couple days and I had to see the doc to get a pain shot.

Anyway, a week plus later I can walk pretty normal but the subtle swelling around both ankle bones just lingers. I’m wondering if that is swelling from lingering gout or inflammation from damaged tissue around the ankle? I can’t seem to get past this “last phase”.

Any advice?
