    Shantell, great news... Did he give u any basic exercises? I found my ankle so stiff that this one exercise was the best & I still do it: put both feet together at the ankle bring both feet up then point them. It will take sometime but eventually both feet will move equally. The same with walking, it takes conditioning & time.

    Take your meds if u need to, eventually u won't need them. Good luck, Karran

      Shantell, What has helped me to get over stiff ankles from being in a cast for so long, is this simple exercise: sit or lay down and just move your ankle up & down. Moving your good foot with the repaired one makes it easy to see your improvement. I had a TaloNavicular fussion and this is my only exercise. I walk but swim more every day. 5 1/2 months & Dr doesn't want me walking in sand. Still wearing a shoe with a sole that doesn't bend.

      Everyone's situation is different, but hope this helps. Karran
