Tib/Fib spiral fracture beginning of Jan 2015. But I was treated by a succession of casts (6 in all I think) rather than hardware. So my experience probably won't be of much help but swelling takes forever to go. My OS told me my foot and ankle would never look quite as they did before the break and he was right. But, after much PT and patient working away at stiffness etc as well as keeping a strong focused mental attitude I am pretty much back to where I was pre fracture.
There is loads of help and sympathy on this forum. Keep visiting and the best of luck for your full recovery.
