Depends: It depends on your healthcare provider's assessment of the healing and protocol. Sometimes a smaller ankle support is recommended. Physical therapy may also be suggested. Check with your doctor.

Possible rupture: Patients who suffer achilles ruptures often report feeling hit or kicked in the area and then realizing no one is around them. I recommend you see an orthopedist for an evaluation and recommendations as soon as possible.

Not uncommon : Unfortunately, bunion surgery can be painful. Usually the postop pain can be controlled with several modalities (ankle block, medication, ice, elevation, immobilization, limited or no weightbearing, etc). Contact your surgeon for recommendations.
