kinda 2 month checkup this tuesday

well, ive made it almost 2 months now. the air cast is really getting annoying, as it stinks like the worst kind of foot odor. i get to take it off twice a day to air out and flex my foot up and down. im starting to get some pain on either side of the ankle, at the joint areas that were to be fused. is that normal? also, the spaces where the joints used to be is kinda soft now and i can feel the holes. i had a bad callous on my heal that just pealed off the other day. will i be able to tell if my foot's a non-union? what are the symptoms of that? my foot seems to be in a great position to walk eventually, as it was crooked before and i had to walk on the side of my foot. im concerned about the high heel. i hope that doesnt do anything with the walking.
