In brief: Yes

7 weeks is not that far out for foot and ankle surgery.
Since you had surgery on something that you walk and bear weight on, pain, soreness, and swelling can occur for several months...sometimes even 6 months. Soreness is definitely to be expected at this point. I would say that any remaining sharp pain should begin to improve during the next few weeks. Also, make sure to see your surgeon too.
