How in the world: Would you know your ankle givces out when you jump? And why would you be jumping after "breaking your ankle in 2 different places". Either, your doctor is not communicating to you very well, or you are not listening. You should not be jumping on that foot! and likely, you should be in a cast or at least a cam walker boot.
