Broken ankle and torn ligaments

I fell and broke my ankle (lateral malleous?)and tore some ligaments about 2.5 weeks ago..doc said two choices, walking boot or surgery and we decided boot for now. This is the second time I have broken this ankle :-(. I go back on Tuesday to get more x-rays to see how it is healing (my appt was 2 wks ago). This time around, it hurts a lot worse.. I'm still taking pain meds bcuz of the pain..is this normal? I would like to avoid surgery if all possible! Thx
