In brief: Maybe

Need to be evaluated by specialist to determine damage that has occurred and what can be done to fix this.

In brief: Need full evaluation

With torn ligaments three months ago and ongoing pain, you should see a foot and ankle surgical specialist.
You might need surgical repair of the ligaments to try to return to pain-free living and walking. With that said, torn ligaments that don't require surgical repair can take many months to heal to a sufficient degree to allow a pain-free state.
