In brief: See your doctor

There can be a variety of reasons for these symptoms.
See your surgeon for evaluation. It is not unusual to have some swelling and discomfort away from the surgical site due to favoring the feet. Have it evaluated. Dr. L

Check your uric acid to be less than 6 and TSH to be less than 2.0

In brief: Ankle exam needed

Bunin surgery and ankle pain, especially bilaterally should not be associated.
You need an orthopoedic exam to determine why you have pain in both ankles
