Hi, Welcome to Just Answer. I'm Chris, a small animal Vet based in the UK. I am reviewing your question and will get back to you as soon as possible
That's good to hear that he is healing well, I would have thought another 2 weeks or so to help build up the strength in her legs. However I would follow the advice given by your vet/orthopedic surgeon regarding reintroduction to exercise/flight etc as they will have the benefit of being able to evaluate the healing on her xrays.
I hope that helps, please let me know if you need any further advice or information.
I would be concerned that nerve damage is more the issue than the position of the leg itself, with an open fracture there is likely to be significant soft tissue trauma and this may have damaged the nerve supply. Only time will tell but I would prepare yourself for the fact that full function of the foot may not be regained and a second surgery may not improve this.
No I'm afraid an xray will not give us information about the nerves. The soft tissue growth may be scar tissue which has formed at the site of the injury
