I am a 21 year old female. I have a metatarsal hairline fracture. I have been in a cast for 2.5 weeks. My foot swells when I walk. I am supposed to get the cast off in 2-3 days. Is the swelling normal?

Hello, thanks for the query. The swelling is fairly common, once cast is taken off and proper usage starts, it will recover. There's no reason to worry. Thanks.
