Bruised ankle bone

Hi. I knocked my ankle really hard of a wooding bed. Over a week now. It was very painfull and have been since. I cant put much weight on it but have been limping about it and limited movenment in it. I had a x ray and the doctor told me its really badly bruise. The thing is how long does it take 2 be able 2 walk normal on it again and do the Pain travel it 2 your hamstring. Im thinking of trying 2 get another X-ray but not sure. If anyone one can advice me on it

Can you get a bone scan? That will show a fracture like a hairline that typically does not show up on an x-ray.
