Hi, it does get better but oh so slowly. I opted not to have surgery but to heal the fractures with casts and manipulation. I am now fwb, (4 months on), and experience little pain in my leg but my ankle is another matter. The swelling has finally gone down a bit but I cannot get a shoe on the injured leg.I can now walk short distances without any aid but my confidence is in shreds and it really is a mind over matter scenario. Apart from the ankle exercises I have been given I find walking in a swimming pool really helps and if I am outside of the house an air boot given to me by physio really helps. Still limping though but everyday gets a little better. Be careful not to let other parts of your body overcomplicated for your injured leg. I find my left hip and lower back ache like mad after using my injured right leg.
Good luck everyone.
