Compression fracture

My MRI shows shadowing below the talus and have recently had a CT scan.I see my Dr.(GP) about results next week.........I am wearing an air cast when ever I go out and this seems to control the swelling....I have been limping around for almost 6 months(went over on right ankle in October)....I have an appointment to see Orthopedic Surgen for late JUNE....I am getting a little tired of limping around....If surgery is needed, could you tell me what is done for a compression fracture and how much longer would I be off my feet?.....Inactivity and weight gain = depression!

Thanks for your time.

The Active Ankle offers flexibility and security. It will feel different from anything you have ever worn for ankle protection. The hinge allows freedom of motion that you may not be accustomed to. Do not mistake this freedom of movement for lack of support. A leading university said, the Active Ankle provides more support (inversion) than the leading air-stirrup brace, the leading lace-up brace, or a tape job.
