calcaneus fracture of both feet, after surgery

On April 29, 2003 I fell off a roof and crushed my left calcaneus bone and fractured my right in 3 places. Sx was done 3 weeks later on my left foot with pins and screws and placed in cast, right foot was put into cast with no sx. Sept cast have been removed, dr. said I will have a foot of a 75 year old women. Therapy was supposed to be started after removal of cast, but dr. decided against it. I can not move my left foot in a circular motion or side to side, so balance is a issue. The pain and spasms that I have are not something that I look foward to each day. Swelling and bruising on top of my foot still occurs daily, I have to use my crutches and boot on adaily basis. I think something is just not right I aslo think that I should have had therapy. Any suggestions or feedback? I am a 43 year old female.
