If I was in your position, after all this time waiting, I will definitely go for surgery. Tell the doctors to use the option they think is better for your bone, at the end of the day we aren't doctors. I believe its a pretty easy procedure for them, they are used to. So don't be scared, this is like going to the mechanic! I would recommend you to do something. Lay in bed, take out the boot, get a towel and hold the towel from each side ( like an elastic band), now put the towel just under your toes, now gently push the towel towards you and with your foot push towards the wall, repeat the same to both sides, hold on the right and push to the left and opposite. Write down, first your flexibility, compare to your good foot, second how hard is to do that and third how your entire leg feels when you do it. I wish I done that before my surgery, because I truly believe my surgeons bruised my nerves and caused second degree injuries on it. Nothing to worry as its keeping me in a 'chill mode', my nerve don't allow my leg to have much power and therefore I can't over do excercise, it will get better by the end of December but I have loss the sensation in a part of my leg forever. I can't wait for the 14th! for you and for me! I want more surgery, at least to remove some screws of my knee! I have like 6 in it and it's painful! My break was pretty nasty and I broke the bone and moved it all over the place. I guess that's the reason is so painful.. but as they say.. no pain, no gain!
