Chip Fracture Cuboid

Was in a car accident 6/3/05. At first, neither ER or Ortho could see a fracture. Was finally diagnosed with chip fracture cuboid.

My question is: Upon impact, my foot was in severe pain and very very swollen esp. on right side. I was in a small hard cast for one month. Cast was taken off today. My foot is still very swollen (esp. when standing) and I canot move my ankle much. I have had two previous fractures in the same foot (7 yrs ago). Doc put on soft cast and told me to stay off my foot. Is this normal?

Gently supports the ankle by providing controlled compression throughout the joint, while relieving pressure over the malleoli.
