How many days after an ankle sprain will it take to walk on both legs?

I had an ankle sprain in my left leg 25 days ago. I already consulted the doctor and they made plaster cast on my injured leg.
How much time it will take to walk on both my legs?

This is really a question you address to the doctor; I have no idea how bad the sprain was.

Ankle sprains can be worse than a fracture, as the ligaments have no good blood supply like bone does.

A lot of the pain often comes from a subluxated subtalar joint, rather than the torn ligaments; this needs to be reduced as soon as the caste comes off.

Usually you will go into a moon boot that can be removed quite soon.

Sorry to be rather vague about your question.
