In brief: Yes

The doctor did this to immobilize the foot to prevent the surgery from injury if you where to walk on it.

In brief: Bandage

I'm not sure what the question is .
Is it that you are surprised at the extent of the cast ? All docs bandage based on their training and what works best in their hands. This should have been discussed before surgery.
