hello ayu .. thanks for the question ..
according to the complaint that you are experiencing, the right little toe is often stiff and cramps after 1 week wearing a cast. this is most likely due to the position effect that does not change for a long time when wearing a cast, or the possibility of nerve disorders in the injured pinky finger. in addition, a history of tidal casts can also cause the foot / area around the cast to be scuffed and swollen if it does not match the size and position. therefore, after finishing using the cast it is recommended to move the foot slowly to get used to it, even if physiotherapy is needed. the process of healing broken bones or cracks takes several weeks to months according to the condition of the injury. in your situation it may take 1-2 months to heal and walk normally if there is no ballast (such as: an infection). you need to pay attention to is avoid heavy movements / activities, train moving your legs or walk slowly, if the feet are still swollen can be compressed with normal / cold water, consumption of foods or supplements that are rich in calcium and vitamin D, consumption of relievers pain if necessary, routinely control a doctor. if bruising and swelling does not decrease and are very painful and increasingly difficult to move or until a fever arises, you should consult a doctor nearest to get the right treatment / treatment of course after further examination.
hopefully can help..
