The petition was approved while I was there does that make any difference? Also I have a sister that is a US Citizen can she file a petition for me?

It does make a big difference. You then have to get a substitute sponsor for an affidavit of support. But you still need to ask for a special permission to be admitted after your removal. Your sister can petition you but it will take no less than 8-10 years before you can get a green card.

No. The only way you can reduce the time is if you apply for permission known as I-212, and it is granted. The main problem with that is that you need to show that you have a spouse, parent or child who is a US citizen or a green card holder who will suffer extreme hardship if you are not admitted. Even though your sister is a US citizen, she does not qualify.
