More update  
Today I saw the neuromuscular specialist. After a lot of poking and prodding and electric shocks, I've learned why it seems that my foot isn't getting much better. I do have some muscle weakness, which means I have some physio to do to get some of that back, but I also have nerve damage. My foot doesn't feel as strong or as stable as it used to because though the nerve messages are getting through, where I had the injury/surgery is basically blocking the signal. Parts of my foot are numb. The doctor says some of that feeling may come back, the nerves may heal themselves, but there is a chance they won't either. To be able to walk properly again I need exercises to get my range of motion back and also just to get used to the fact that parts of my foot are numb. It's just not going to be the same, so I need to get used to this level of sensitivity. It's a bit weird, but I'll adapt.

I guess the moral of the story is don't injure your ankles, it's just not worth it.
