Are you sure it's the ankle?  And not the bones on the side of the foot?  Did the orthopedic surgeon take X-rays and give you an MRI?  Did he tell you to rest, ice, and elevate?  Without a specific diagnosis there's not much anyone can help you with, but I think in most places now throughout the world the restrictions on medical procedures are being lifted, so check wherever you are and see if that's the case.

no the doctor didnt take any x-ray or MRI but he said it had something to do with the muscle on the outer side of the ankle and i forgot to mention is that i also feel that my foot is bending inwards and that you know when you move your feet inward you feel some tension on the outside i cant really feel that my foot just drops
