I broke my ankle on 18th February ( Tibia and Fibula) had surgery on 8th March. (Plate and screws.) After 6 weeks in a cast and nwb the cast was removed and I was told I could start partial weight bearing with crutches. Today I tried walking with one crutch, this is two weeks after cast was removed. I was very nervous but it went ok. I have also been to physio once but that the was more an evaluation, I was also given a paper with some ankle and foot exercises to do at home. All I can say is to do what your surgeon tells you to do and be patient it takes time a lot of rest and a ton of prayer but you will get there. I am 59 year old and at one time it felt like I would never walk again. Now the pain is minimal but I still have swelling and stiffness in the ankle but it is getting better every day. Hope this helps.
