Hi welcome to Healthcaremagic

Hi... you must not exert the foot must much.., until the ligaments are completely healed..
It may take 8 to 12 weeks for the tendons and ligaments healed and strengthened...even though , it is healed , it is better not to exert much.....use ankle brace for few weeks...
Hope I have answered your question..

Takecare..
