In brief: Have it replaced

If your surgeon feels the need to keep you in a cast, it has to be reasonably comfortable.
A "really painful" cast needs to be removed and replaced.

In brief: Cast pain

Yes - get it off and a new one to replace it. See your surgeon asap.

Elevate the foot to minimize the swelling and contact your surgeon and have it evaluated.
