I have a 5 mm bone chip on ankle, and have surgery scheduled. Is it safe to still do physical therapy?

In brief: Ankle loose Body

Yes, physical therapy can still be done with the therapist aware of your current problem and position of the loose body.
Maintenance of range of motion, strength and proprioception can still be of benefit prior to surgery.
