When I woke up in recovery after my bunion surgery, I was told I could "heel walk", but that was impossible for me to do for several days. The first 2 days, the ankle like yours could not move due to being numb. Later, my foot was so swollen, I was afraid of opening my incision. after two weeks, I began heel walking and got rid of my crutches.

As for you staples, and soft bone-- that sounds sketchy... I had a screw put in, and I still have it. Also, I think good healthy bones are hard, not soft. But, hey, I am just a biologist, not a doctor.

Good luck. Using crutches does sound like a good idea.
