Sympathies on joining the club. After surgery, generally the first few days are the most painful, then it starts to improve, and a lot more after about day 10. You may find it is less painful after the surgery than it is now, as the bones will be held in place properly. Important thing post surgery is to rest and keep your leg elevated (e.g. up on pillow or a beanbag while you are sitting or lying), because otherwise blood and fluid won't return from your foot and ankle back to your body - normally this relies on the muscles of your legs squeezing the veins to move blood back up the leg. And do NOT try to walk on it before cleared to do so, or you risk re-fracturing. You're going to want things to keep yourself occupied while immobile. And something in which you can carry stuff while on crutches. Good luck!
