My knee is not as swollen as it has been but instead my ankle has now swollen up.

What could it be?

Swelling will drain from your knee into your ankle.  Its natural.  Keep your leg elevated way above the level of your heart.

My ankles were so swollen after each of my TTT's that I could wear normal shoes and had to wear crocs everywhere.

I had swelling for months after surgery, including my ankle.
