Broken ankle = Long leg cast?

I recently broke my ankle and the doctor put me in a full leg cast. Is this normal treatment for a broken ankle? I thought that I would get a short leg cast. The doc said I will get a short leg cast in a few weeks. Can you explain why I didn't get one now? Thanks, Lindsay
