Do I need ankle Surgery?

I am currently a student at a military college and have plans on going into the military. However, I have bad ankles, where I chronically sprain and or roll them. I visited the Sports medicine cliniq on campus she basically said my ankles are in pretty bad shape. She did something where she was able to pull my foot out of what seemed to be a socket. She said that my ankles ligaments were very badly stretched. I can barely balance on one foot. I was wondering what you opinion is on what I should do because I am to afraid to ask my general practitioner or any other doctor, because if the military finds out I have had chronic ankle sprains I might not be able to get in. I already wear an ankle brace, but is there anything I can do besides that because I obviously cant wear one out in the field. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
