I fell down from stairs n got ligament injury in ankle. Then I got plaster in my leg for one week as per doctor's advice. But I am not able to walk properly after removal of plaster. Can you tell me why is it so and when will I able to walk properly? I am not able to bear weight on the injured ankle even after getting plaster removal. What should I do?

You need physiotherapy as well as medication to ease.
Since it was injury in your ligament, it may take some time to become normal. Let it heal naturally don't put stress on it.
