Thanks for writing to us.
After removal of a cast stiffness of the foot is a normal finding. Regular hot fomentation and physiotherapy is needed for the activity to return. You can get an MRI done to detect any soft tissue injuries or a persistent fracture in the area.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
