So it only took a few nights before I stopped having pain in my foot which is nice and I can now move my ankle somewhat, although its still super stiff and swollen. I'm still walking like the slowest turtle around and am still weary about putting too much weight on it. It's a week in to having my cast removed and I feel like I've made progress. Another week and my moon boot comes off and I can put full weight onto my foot which to be honest is a scary prospect but it means I'll be real-ish walking not just moon boot walking :). I have acceptance now this is a slow process.
