I had a auto accident and my elbow shattered into pieces. The DR said it crumbled more when he placed a plate with screws. I have lost a great deal of function, Limited use and some pain. The bones in the ankle are likened to a puzzle. It sometimes does not go back into place. Eventually it will form a callus of calcium around the bone and it fuses on its own. You need to exercise that foot so it does not freeze. Hope that helps
