In brief: Most Likely

I am assuming that you had compartment syndrome of the lower leg and required fasciotomies.
Your recovery will be mostly dependent on whether or not there was any nerve or muscle injury. If you have irreversible nerve damage, this would have the biggest impact on your recovery. If you have any muscle loss, this too will have a negative impact. If no nerve or muscle loss, then likely full recovery.
