 Re: First break, so many questions

Tilly, that sounds to me like there's a problem with your cast affecting circulation and putting pressure on nerves. I'd get it checked out as they may need to remove the cast and put another one on. Happened with me - every time I put my leg downwards the cast shifted and cut off circulation to my foot, which changed colour - darker, as you say - and in my case very painful. With a new cast that problem was solved.

Try to get an appointment to have it looked at and possibly replaced. Take pictures of the colour your foot goes in case it doesn't change as intensely when you go to be looked at (I had that happen and was sent away agai initially, with them assuming it was in the normal range - which it very definitely wasn't!

Good luck.
