Orthopaedic Surgeon, Joint Replacement 's  Response
I think you should get MRI of the ankle to confirm the injury of the ligament. I would also suggest you to show it to a sports injury specialist who can tell you about ligament injury repair. If you want you can send me the MRI report as I routinely perform these type of surgeries. Result without surgery for such injury are quite bad.
