In brief: This happens

This happens often, due to the fact that you have placed all of your weight in the last 11 weeks on the contralateral leg and ankle.
You have developed tendinitis at this time. Ice, elevate and compress. Also if you are receiving physical therapy at this time for the broken ankle, you may want to let your therapist know about the pain. Let you doctor know as well.
