I sprained my ankle 5 months ago As soon as

Patient : I sprained my ankle 5 months ago. As soon as it happened, rmy ankle swelled up really bad and bruised immediately. I couldnt walk on it at all for three days. 5 months later and its still swollen so i have an mri and they called me back and said i had toen a ligament but said nothing more and i am waiting on a call back for another appointment to go over my mri results. Im just wondering if you will think that i will need surgery. I havent had any physical therapy since it happened and it hasnt been rested. Ive stayed on it very much so im worried its gotten worse. Its in constant pain even though ive learned to cope with it and both sides of my ankle have been swollen for 5 months. Do you think i will have to have surgery?
