Talus

I was in a car accident and shattered my talus (Neck). My ortho was going to go attach the piece that broke off back to the talus. As he tried to do this in surgery the piece blew apart so he cleaned it all out and shaved the area that know had a missing piece in it. This was about 10 months ago and I have had nothing but pain, tingling and swelling yet none of my doctors have been not been able to tell me the exact cause. I have had diagnosis from avascular necrosis to achilles hardening as a result from all this and saw a neurologist and nerve damage was ruled out. I've been through PT and still no results. The next step is they are putting me in a achilles brace. Any knowledge or insight on this type of fracture would be greatly appreciated :) Thank you.
