See your surgeon: Again best option is to see your treating orthopedist... Your fracture undoubtedly healed but during casting and 'boot' or cam walker use your ankle was immobilized . You may be having pain because of ankle stiffness or because you began running too quickly or aggressively on bone that is not ready for it( disuse osteopenia can develop even in young adults after tibia fractures). See your ors. Gl!
