Recent injury?: With out recent history of trauma (ankle twist) and know history of multiple prior ankle injuries, you may be referring to something known as a 'joint mouse' or a chip of bone floating within a joint space. Symptomatic osteophytes often require surgical intervention, it's size and location will determine the level of invasiveness- orthoscopic vs. Open.

No way to know: If insured, your in the right window for a bone stim, i advise you make an attempt to get one. It may never collapse , dead bone can be rock hard- stick to your doctors recommendations, non compliance often leads to unnecessary complications.

Upper Body: Try bench exercises and upper body workouts. If you are out of the cast and bones are healed you can try swimming, being careful not to push off if your are doing laps. It's best to get the "all clear" from your doctor following an exam prior to exercising, the last thing you want to do is exacerbate your current injury or create a new one.
