Thanks for writing to us.
After having a cast for 4 months, a noticeable limp during walking is expected. You need to have pain killers, do a hot fomentation and once the acute pain subsides, go for physiotherapy sessions so that full range of movement can be restored.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
