Shattered talus bone

I dislocated my foot and shattered the talus bone in my ankle back on July 12th. I had surgery to repair the damage. In Sept, I went back for xrays and the xrays showed where my ankle was not healing on the inside of my ankle where he made the incisions for surgery in July. He also said that I didn't have a good blood supply in the bones and the bones have the potential to die off and crumble. This didn't make me happy!! The top part of my foot appeared to be healing okay though. I had to go back in October for more xrays and it was finally starting to show a little healing on the inside of my ankle and the bones didn't look like they were trying to die off. This was a good sign! :) My surgeon finally allowed me to start putting 50% of my weight onto my foot. He wanted me to start working my way up to fullweight as soon as I was able. Now my foot is swelling up really bad on the left side. I didn't break anything on the left side of my foot and that is where most of my pain is now. I can feel my ankle popping each time I walk and the pain seems to radiate up through my fibula. It also looks like someone took a airpump and blew my foot up after walking on it. I could understand having a lot of pain where they did my incisions and where it wasn't healing properly, but I don't understand why I am having so much pain on the left side when I didn't break anything on that side. It's been 4 months now and I still can't walk on my ankle without my crutches. I am wondering if he should have done a MRI to check for tissue damage. I just feel like after 4 months I should be up walking on my own by now. Any opinions?
