Get evaluated : Casts are not meant to stay on for eight weeks in a row. Most casts need to be changed every few weeks. At that time the skin needs to be checked for sores and wounds. Please get evaluated.

Time to cast off.: It would be appropriate to call your surgeon and give him the details. I would think that it is about time to have the cast removed regardless of whatever procedure was performed.
