Having had a similar injury, I'd be concerned about cartilage damage at the Talotibial joint. AKA arthritis and loss of range of motion. Do the PT vigorously as permitted.
I was 8 weeks on crutches then permitted to start weight bearing. Took me 2 weeks to get off the crutches and walk unassisted wearing a rigid brace with a limp. Be patient. Swelling was an issue for six months. Oxycontin was my friend. Wish you well.
