Hit by a softball and still swollen

Question: Hit by a softball and still swollen

I am a pitcher for a softball team. 4 weeks ago I was on the mound and was hit by a line drive on my ankle bone. I went to the ER and had an x-ray. I was told that it was not broken but a bruised bone. 4 weeks later I am still very swollen and very sore and very bruised. How long should this process take or should I go see a ortho doc?

By the way: I am 47 and have osteoporosis and have retired from softball.
