Doctors
Not sure exactly what the question is, but if you had an operation 3 weeks ago, and you have swelling in your ankles and feet, it is probably a normal part of the recovery. If it is only on one side, or persistent, I would get an ultrasound of the legs to make sure you don't have a deep vein thrombosis or DVT. While uncommon, they can be fatal if not detected and treated.

What kind of surgery? If inguinal hernia you need evaluation for Thrombophlebitis vs lymphedema. Seek advice
