You then should go back and see your treating doctor, and talk with them about this.

Were you given any work restrictions by your doctor? If not, you need to return to him and tell him what's going on at work (all the walking & bad pain) Possibly you need more treatment or healing time. You certainly don't want to injure yourself even more!
