Post Ankle Scope Question

I am 6 days post ankle scope. I can bear weight and take about 8 normal steps (full weight bearing) on my scoped ankle then I need to use my crutches to lessen the load. I feel like I should be farther along than this. (I tend to be over anxious and have been dealing with my ankle for 4 months and 1 week). Is it normal to still have pain from the ankle scope 6 days after the scope?.....I had a 1.5 inch incision made on my medial ankle to look at my PTT tendon...that area is pretty painful. I'm not on any pain meds. I guess I just need to know if it is normal to be in pain still 6 days after the ankle scope.

I was in a splint on crutches for 10 days after, and it took about a week after that for me to get as good at walking as I'd been before.
