I was off work in in a cast for 12 weeks. Then the darth boot for another couple of weeks. I had PT for 8 weeks 3 times a week. Continued to have constant pain - having good days and bad days. Now, coming up on my 2nd anniversary I have really bad arthritis in my ankle. I saw the OS yesterday and was given a special metal brace made onto my shoe - and finally confessed "I'm handicapped". My bones and everything have healed perfectly but it's just the arthritis. My OS said sometimes with a compound fracture the arthritis takes hold early and gets bad. I have a plate and lots of screws. Don't want to scare you but I have not had a good time of it at all. I'm sure you will do much better than me. Hang in there.
