Thanks for writing to us,

I have studied your case with diligence.

There is possibility of cast tightness.
consult your doctor.
Watch for swelling on fingers.
Limb elevation can reduce pain,
Regular physiotherapy and exercises are very important for early rehabilitation as my patients find much relief by these therapies.
