Needless : Needless to say, now that you have your MRI report, your questions are really best answered by your doctor. So that you are properly armed with information, in general terms, you have several places where the bone has been injured, but not fractured around your ankle and foot. More significantly, you have a torn ligament on the outside (lateral) part of your ankle. The anterior talo-fibular ligament is the most frequently injured ligament in an ankle injury. According to the mri, this is a full thickness tear, or rather a complete tear, not just a few fibers. You also have some partial tears of other ligaments. So, in short, you have a pretty significant soft tissue injury to your ankle. No fractures, however. Depending on your age and level of activity, there is a good chance you'll require surgery to repair at least one of those torn ligaments. And, since ligaments receive less blood than bone, they take longer to heal, so you'll probably be in a cast, off-weight bearing, for a couple of months, and also have a course of physical therapy. Hope this helps. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Healing is an ongoing physiological response, guided by chemical signals that can be altered by external treatment applications. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
