i busted my leg 7 years ago, bi-malleal fracture of my right ankle. Had it plated n pinned and spent 6 weeks in plaster. Did the usual physio when out of plaster and t'ings were good. I wasn't a runner then (not really now), but with three months I was back doing weights (quite serious sqauts and deadlifts, up to 180kg dead lifts). Anyway... i'd say keep up with the physio, make sure you do the exercises between classes and you'll be ok.
The ankle's never been the same since, and never will be "normal". It swells in the cold, aches and is stiff, and looks plain ugly! But, it did get me round the FLM in 2003 and will do so again next year I hope.
