You will be allowed to travel with a sprained ankle. In the meantime make sure you elevate your leg whenever possible and try not to walk on it,resting the ankle is the most important thing and make sure you keep it raised when in bed too.A cold compress such as a bag of frozen peas will also help but don't allow your ankle to get to cold. Ibrofen tablets can reduce the swelling but do not take them on an empty stomach. The more you rest it then the quicker it will get better. 20 days to go for me too!

In case you still have walking difficulty around your departure date, I would sudgest that you contact your travel provider and request that they provide you with assistance at the airports.
You should remind the clerk at the check-in desk that this is required, who will then advise you what to do.
You can always cancell the assistance if you no longer require it.
This is a free service provided by the airport handling company, but they require advance notice if possible.

I had a complete rupture of my Achilles tendon in March - in Tobago - limped around for 6 days over there, - travelled back and had to walk the full length (it seemed like it) of Gatwick airport, because there was absolutley no-one there to provide assistance at that time of the morning. A sprained ankle - you should be fine - don't worry!
