It sounds as though you had quite the accident. Fractured ribs are painful enough, the fracture/dislocation of an ankle can have long rehabilitation schedules. In addition, of course, it also depends on what sports you want to play. You most likely had surgery on the ankle. I would ask the surgeon for his opinion, he would know better than anyone else. Good luck.
