In brief: Common

It is common to have residual pain after a significant fracture of the ankle requiring 2 surgeries.
Obviously there is a lot of stress in everyday life on the foot and ankle and since you have had the injury there may be abnormal pain signals as well as some degeneration of the joints. Talk to your orthopedic doctor.
