In brief: Have surgery

Trimalleolar fractures are very unstable and will require surgery to repair the fractures.
There is high risk for future ankle joint damage and arthritis if untreated.

In brief: Get evaluated

If you have a trimalleolar fracture you should be evaluated by a board certified foot/ankle surgeon.
You will need to be evaluated for possible surgery in order to realign the ankle joint and prevent further problems. Don't get caught in the myth that 'if i can walk it must not be that bad".
