Talus Contusion

I'm an american working overseas and injured my ankle playing in a soccer tournament in March of 2003. At first I thought it was just a normal sprain or strain but it didn't heal. It is now 6 months later and I still have the same pain. I got an MRI a month ago and the result is as follows:

Bone Contusion, Superolateral Aspect of the Talus
Consider small focus of Osteonecrosis, Distal Fibula

I cannot find a doctor in this country that can give me any sort of solution to this problem. I am a soccer coach and desperatly need use of my ankle! I'm wanting to know if there is anything that can be done to speed up the healing of my ankle or if I need to try to stay off of it and hope it will heal on its own before too long.
