What to expect?

August 2011 I went to the emergency room because my foot was swollen and it had turned inward.I walked on it like this for 2 weeks prior.I was diagnosed with a broken ankle and Charcot foot.They put me in a Jones splint cast and told me to follow up with an orthapetic doctor in 2 weeks.I went to one and she changed the cast and told me to return 2 weeks later.When I went back she put me in a Bledsoe walking boot,told me to wean myself off the walker,and to follow up 4 weeks later.All this time I was paying for this out my pocket because of no insurance. November 30th I went to the emergency room because my boot broke and rubbed a sore on my ankle.They x-rayed my foot/ankle and did a sonogram.The doctor said my ankle was healed but the bones in my foot “were still all over the place”.
