Question PT after brostrom procedure?

I had a brostrom procedure done on my left ankle 7 weeks ago. I go back to the doctor in 2 weeks to get my cast off, and at that point I am also going to schedule physical therapy. I was wondering how much PT I am going to need? I ask because I work during the week. I usually don't get out until 5:30, and I have no idea how I would be able to do PT at the same time. If it's really necessary, I will obviously work it out though!
another question: will I have to wear some kind of boot after I get my cast off? and for how long?
Also, I was told that I also might need the same surgery done on my right ankle. If I do need this (I find out in two weeks when I get my cast off), how long should I wait for my left ankle to heal? I just want to get this done and over with as soon as I can! I haven't had a chance to have any of these questions answered; I haven't seen my doctor since the day of my surgery.
thank you for any help!
