My new duck to the flock got his foot shut in the coop door. He was struggling anyway to get use to a new home. He started with a limp, seemed to be a bit better on day 2, now he barely uses it. He limos to food/water/flock. Struggling with cooping him. Vet said to seclude him with a mate, but he won't come near me. It's our favorite duck and I'm very scared for his well being.

You could try posting in full detail at "emergencies, diseases, injuries, cures," thread. You may also want to ask folks on the DUCK thread at "Other Backyard Poultry," forum.

Have you tried catching him in the dark.? I don't know about ducks but, chickens don't want to move in the dark. Then you could put him somewhere secluded with a mate, like your vet advised.
