    Possible broken ankle tendon graft

    In 2002 I had surgery to correct broken ankle ligaments. I had sprained my ankle severeley a number of times and been left with a permanently loose ankle. I had surgery which fixed outside ligaments of the ankle using I think a tendon graft from the Peroneus Brevis, this has held my ankle for the past five years. Two weeks ago I fell over a cat and badly sprained the same ankle. It swelled for a couple of days but seemed ok after a week apart from some lumpy areas around the area of the scare from the operation. Doing Yoga this morning I realised in one of the sitting poses that the ankle was laterally coming out of the socket again as it had in 2002.

    Put simply my question is:

    Is is possible to have any more surgery or phisiotherapy on this injury when it appears that I have broken the tendon graft that fixed the earlier problem?

    I am of course worried about the potential for future falls, arthritis etc.

    I am an atheletic male in his late 20s in good general health.

    Thanks for your thoughts.
