Any danger post subtalur dislocation?

I am a 30 year old male.
26 months ago I experienced a subtalur dislocation.
Surgery was necessary to reattach my foot, otherwise no pins or screws.
After 18 months, no necrosis of the talus, so my podiatrist told me not to worry about it and that I was lucky to avoid having my ankle fused.
inversion and eversion range is limited to about 30-40% of what is was, while my forward and backward range (??) is probably around 80-85% of what it was.
My doctor told me to expect problems with arthritis in the future.
I have two questions: What if anything can I do to extend the range and flexibility of my ankle?
What affect will backpacking and extended hiking have on my ankle (besides causing it to swell, become extremely sore and tight for a day or two) and long term mobility?
Thank you very much for your opinion and time,Michael

    No- Warts are caused by the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) of which there are numerous ones. They all have different areas of the body that they like. We do not share the same warts with other animals (including frogs). While there are no cures that are 100% successful, there are many treatments available. ALl of them seem to have worked on some patients sometimes. Ask your doctor for more information.
