Hairline fracture

I've had a crack in my talus(anklebone) a month ago. My doctor discharged me after applying a week of cast on having no pain or swelling. But after 2 days ot started paining, so, a fiberglass cast was applied. It has been 33 days since the initial injury, is it safe to get it removed???

you have to give 6 weeks of immobilization for the fracture to heal so that u can bear weight. Get a fresh check X-ray done to confirm healing before removal of cast.
