Angela, I broke my fibula in June 2015. Ankle flexibility took a while to return and I got a pelvic stress fracture on the other side because I'd returned to marathon+ running without regaining full ankle flexibility, but then I had more physio and I've since run several marathons and ultramarathons up to 54-miles long.
People are sometimes left with pain due to nerve injury, but your present pain is probably just because of the use after immobilisation. Give it time.
