Broke ankle both tibula and fibula, suggested for surgery, outside ankle bone slowly healing. Will it heal correctly?

Broke ankle both tibula and fibula doctor said needed surgery. Never got it. Happen two months ago. Swelling gone . Foot looks normal. Can feel onside heald . Outside ankle bone has not healed though. On krutchs . but if i try i can walk/limp. No vissible defomitys. Think outside bone bearly started hea healing last week. No longer shifts when i tilt leg. Have no cast just temporary casting. I wrap it up like a sprung ankle. Will i heal correctly? Will i be able to walk normally ? Again foot looks almost normal in color n minimal swelling.

the first thing is you have not mentioned about the cast applied or not,if yes the from which region exactly,for what duration,if it is done by some orthopedician or other professional?after cast have you taken any x ray immediately or after 2 months? if yes then what is the status? is the bone got healed or not?are you taking calcium? still as per your discussion look from outside is not the parameter to comment about internal will surely get alright but you have to follow proper way of the way you have not mentioned your age and sex which is very important for saying anything.
