Broke my hand 2 months ago. Had a cast on for 6 weeks. And hand is still painful and constantly swollen. Is this normal?

In brief: Depends

It depends somewhat on the nature of the fracture and if there were other associated injuries.
It is not terribly abnormal, particularly if you are getting better. Don't hesitate to discuss this with your doctor or even seek a second opinion if you don't feel comfortable with the answers you are getting.
