I had a stress fracture in my navicular bone at the end of november and tear in my anterior talofibular ligament and the tear still isn't healed?
6 months = 2 long.: Typically, tears of the anterior talofibular ligament respond very well to non-surgical treatment. An appropriate period in immobility and subsequent physical therapy are usually adequate. If after 6 months, you are still having pain and instability of the ankle, then perhaps it's time for another look to given to the injured ligament and the old injury.
Surgery: Surgery of any kind is to be taken seriously. Make sure you follow your surgeon's directions to help ensure a good outcome.See 1 more doctor answer

ATF tear: An MRI should confirm the category of damage...i find they frequently under-estimate the degree of injury...more important is the length of time that has passed and the level of symptoms...it will likely never heal without surgery and that might range from a simple repair to a graft overlay to a complete graft replacement...
I had an ankle sprain 6 months back. It still pains if I standand walk for 5 minutes. The MRI reported torn talocalcanealligament with partial tear of post. Talofibular ligament. Whatshould I do?
See specialist.: It is not common to have tear of those ligaments. Typically if the posterior talofib is torn, the anterior talofib and calcaneaofib also torn. The talocalcaneal lig also hard to tear. This may mean very high level ankle sprain and a foot/ankle specialist is needed.See 3 more doctor answers
