Is pain in my calf normal after knee surgery?

No. Calf pain is not normal after knee surgery. I would go back to your orthopedic surgeon as soon as possible. You can possible have a blood clot in your calf after surgery. If you have asleep venous thrombosis that could be life threatening.
Maybe. Some pain is to be expected around the knee but new pain and swelling may indicate a deep venous thrombosis, dvt, and should be evaluated by a doctor asap. You probbaly will need a duplex ultrasound. Call your orthopedist.

See details. This is obviously not a normal result from what i assume to be arthroscopic surgery. You should not still need a brace and should not be in pain.
