3rd degree inversion: A severe 3rd degree inversion ankle sprain takes longer than 3-4 weeks and may need surgery to stabilize the multiple ligament tears. Due to the severity, you may have internal ankle joint damage as well and may need surgical stabilization procedures which can take up to 3-6 months to heal. Best of luck.
