Ligament tear or Fracture?
My sister fell in house and had ankle swelling a month ago, consulted a doc and was told 2nd grade ankle sprain and had plaster of paris. After 15days she had pain and they changed that to some fibre support for her legs. After another 15days she had pain we consulted another doc and we were told it was a fracture. Attached are the latest xrays. Now its been a month and she still has pain. Please let us know the current condition. What to do next?

There are fractures at the base of the foot metatarsals ! Please get fresh X-rays of the foot
Next Steps
Usually pain relief and reduction of swelling takes time in such cases

Whether it is ligament injury or a fracture..the foot and ankle needs to be immobilized with a plaster cast till it heals. Don't confuse yourself with all the Advise you are trying to get from online platforms. Have faith in orthopaedic doctor you have consulted and follow his advice. If you have any doubts .. you discuss with your doctor..I'm sure he will help you.
