In brief: Get checked

If the diagnosis of a ligament tear is documented by mri, you need to find out if it is the type that is repairable.
Surgery may be an option to restore integrity in the ligament. If you are not able to walk, that typically indicates instability still. Get checked by a podiatrist or a foot/ankle orthopedist. They handle these types of conditions regularly.
