Christina, your leg is in a cast because the knee needs to stay straight for the bone to heal. Any other issues are addressed after the bone has healed. Leave your leg as still as possible, physio will start once the cast comes off. Your foot issue is normal. Mine turns purple/blue when crutching around, skin is dry and pealy. It will get better once the cast comes off and you start moving your leg again. The doctor hasn’t given you a lot of info because there isn’t much to tell you until the bone is healed. Be patient and be thankful you live in Canada and don’t have to pay the doctors.
