Our expert says:
Difficult to prescribe - what you really need is to consult with a physio for first phase rehab, and then second phase, when the aircast comes off. They'll help with exercises that mostly involve balance and stability, so that you don't "forget" how to control the ankle and the muscles. That's the most important thing right now, but then over time, you'll need to do actual strength work. That comes quite a bit later.
But for now, as much as you may not wish to hear it, the best thing you can do is to see a physio and have the first couple of weeks supervised.
