Have a cast on foot due to a crack in bone. Does this take long to heal and have no pain and its only had cast on for 4 days is that a good sign.

NO: The bone will usually take 6-8 weeks to heal enough to take cast off, depending on type of fracture and the bone that is cracked. The fact that you have no pain means the cast is working, but it does not mean it can come off. The bone is weak and can get out of place with minor injury if you do not protect it with the cast.
