I ended up in the ER with what they call an avulsion fracture and just got the results of the Mri 5 weeks later..
"Complete tear of
the anterior talofibular ligament & high grade sprain injury of the calcaneofibular ligame
On the MRI it shows that the piece that broke off bone itself is healing, but nothing is mentioned on the tear. I am being sent to a clinic in the hospital to see what can be done.
But id like to know if it can heal on its own as surgery is a no for me if it can be avoided.

I had a complete tear in my anterior talofibular ligament and a partial tear in my calcaneofibular ligament. For me, this did require surgery, but I'm not sure if it was because they hadn't healed in 4 months or because of the severity of the tear.
I would recommend you get a doctor (or 2) to give you some advice and maybe try physical therapy. You should probably give it some time to heal first though. If you have no success, then I would definitely recommend surgery. I have an anchor in my ankle that reattached my ligaments to the bone, and it has seriously helped my ankle stability.
I hope you find a solution and recover quickly!
