should I go to therapy today? just got cleared to start for ankle help

I'm just over 5 weeks post op from Brostrom. They repaired the ATFL and peroneal tendon. Things were going great. The doc said to ween myself off crutches and I can go to the brace. He also told me to do some motion exercises, which I didn't really do too much last night. I wanted to wait until therapy. Last night I was able to walk with out crutches. I only walked between rooms and my house for a few minutes with out pain. This morning really bad pain woke me up and Ihad to ice and take some ibuprofen. When I got to work I had a few more bad pains that made me cry. Should I wait a few more days to start therapy or should I go tonight? Maybe they can do ultrasound or something?? I'm not sure what they do, but I'm afraid to even have them touch it now.
