chronic ankle instability

I have had 4 ankle stabilization surgeries, 3 inside of 3 years. About 12 months post-op I roll my ankle and rip out the surures holding the ligaments together.
My Dr. has done tendon grafts 3 0f the 4 times. This last surgery was 12-31-04. At 4 weeks post-op my six year old tripped over my foot, in a removeable cast, and I felt everythis rip and tear. I called the Dr. the next day and he asked if I felt anything "pop", I couldn't remember a popping just extreme pain. Is there anything that can be done to stabilize this ankle permanently and still be able to play soccer? I'm not looking forward to a 5th surgery. Thanks.
