I have torn ligaments/tendons in my ankle. Pt has shown some improvment, but i'm still in pain. Is surgery my only option left? Thanks

In brief: See below

Your doctor can try to immobilize you for a time.
If there is a total tear then surgery is probably needed. There is a newer technique called prp which you can discuss with your doctor.
