Re: Hi, I'm new here - Question/Statement about broken foot

For immediate relief, elevate your foot above your head and stick an ice pack behind your knee. It'll take down the swelling inside of the cast.

If that doesn't help, or if your toes are severely purple since getting the cast, it could be the cast is too tight.
