There is also some swelling in that area. also. Is this normal??.. From the removal of plaster it has been 5 weeks now, so till when will it gain its color as same of the right foot as it appears very awkward now.

Nothing to worry about it if the sensation over your skin is normal and your toe movements are okay. Tight plasters can lead to skin necrosis. Swelling is normal it can persist for many weeks. What you need is exercising your joints.
Next Steps
online video consultation so that i can assess your condition.
