Broken Ankle

On March 9th I broke my ankle. They put a splint on, and ten days later i went to have a plaster cast put on. because of the severe ammount of swelling, they put me in another splint. My orthopedist told me that this sort of brake was very unusual, and i could decide between having surgery or letting it try to heal naturally. He decided to let it heal naturally. Finally on March 27th I was finally put in a plaster cast. I am hoping to get a boot cast next week. My question is...I can feel how swollen the ankle still is (because my cast gets tight sometimes) and it still REALLY hurts. Is this typical?
