After Walking in the Boot ?

I fractured my 4th left metatarsal 69 days ago and was given a sandal with velcro to wear along with an ace bandage from my foot doctor after I limped for 10 days on my foot not knowing anything was fractured. That didn't help, so we went with the boot for 3 weeks. My fracture is almost healed and I am to wear tennis shoes for a month. The problem is for 2 weeks in tennis I can't walk normally. It was like I was still walking like when I was in the boot. Started physical therapy today and the therapist said the problem lies in the back of my ankle. I remember telling the doctor that my ankle was swollen in the boot but I guess he didn't think anything of it. My question is.....shouldn't he have given me some exercises to do while I was in the boot to prevent this? I hope this therapy works for the next 3 weeks...not being able to get around is driving me crazy. Maybe this doesn't happen to everyone? This is my first broken bone so I was clueless as to what I could have done to prevent this immobility.
