Is my cast too big?

I broke my right ankle/foot recently and the doctor put me in a long leg cast. The cast is very heavy and causes extreme pain when I try to lift my leg or when I am crutching. It really is very painfull. Why do I need a full leg cast?

A silicone insert on the back of the Achillotrain leaves tendon pressure-free and provides intermittent compression for the reduction of swelling and edema.
