Brostrum Gould Non Weight Bearing Rehabilitation

Hi all

I had my surgery 2 days ago and am in a plaster cast, This is my first surgery and I have found the other posts relating to this procedure most helpful. My concern is that I'm non weight bearing and I've knocked my cast a couple of times and don't know if this is something I should be worried about? I have little pain so far, just the bottom of the cast pressing into my foot. It seems like the cast is trying to tip my foot up to reduce the pressure on the lateral ligament, and this is resulting in the cast digging in. One the scale of 1 to 10, I'd say I'm about a 2 a the minute.

Can anyone put my mind at rest?
