    My guess is your ankle and foot are very weak due to the surgery. It's great to get back to doing 'normal' activities but I wouldn't push it. Just ease into it. Or after walking prop your foot up. I developed tendinitis in my foot and it's getting better but I still elevate with ice just because. And when I've had a busy day I take OTC meds to bring down the inflammation. I want it to heal nicely.
