plaster came off after 2 weeks

I had a complicated fracture of my right tibia and fibula under went open reduction and external fixation in February after 2 weeks they took off the plaster and staples but never plastered my leg they gave me a grey boot to wear and told me not to put any weight on it but 6 mths later im still in pain and my foot feels num the consultant says it's taking a long time to heal and unless I stop smoking I could lose my leg but when I left the hospital 2 days after I broke my leg I was told that the plaster would be on for 6 weeks
