4 months of swelling after ligament damage in foot

I am a 25 year old female. I fell on the ice this winter, on VALENTINE'S DAY, and went to the doctor, after landing on my foot (right slid under the left leg and I landed hard). I found out I had ligament damage and was told to ice the injury, elevate it.. and then after time, heat the injury and wear an ace bandage if there was pain. Well, 4 months later, my right foot is STILL extremely swollen, so that none of my shoes (save one pair of sneakers) fit anymore. This is impossible to deal with. What can I do? Will the swelling ever go away?
