Need Reassurance

I ruptured my Achilles 2 weeks ago playing basketball.  I had surgery 3 days later and had my cast/stint and stitches removed today.  I’ll be in the boot with lifts for the foreseeable future.  Post surgery, the pain was pretty regular for the first two days, but then it gradually subsided to where I didn’t need to take the pain pills for the next 5-6 days.  However, the pain has gotten worse the past few days, especially in the afternoons/evenings to the point I’ve had difficulties sleeping.  I was hoping I’d get some instant relief once the stint was removed, but I’m currently in pain that is probably worse than it was the first day or two after surgery.  Did anybody experience anything similar?
Thanks!
