Question foot movement after ankle surgery

I had surgery to repair a completly torn ligament, partially torn tendon and remove a loose piece of bone. This was mid May. When I had scheduled the surgery I asked my OS when I would be able to run again. He said 6-8 weeks. I am now 6 weeks out and still in a boot. Which is fine. However I am unable to pull my toes towards me ( like your streching your calf) in fact i am only able to wiggle my toes down not up. i have numbness from my toes going up toward the right side of the middle of my shin. I have an appointment next week and was told when I called that the numbness is normal. However I am worried about not being able to point my toes up. Unfortuately this is my driving foot and I do not see how I would be able to drive anytime soon.

Does anyone out there have experience with this?
