Glad for you that the swelling has gone down enough for you to be fitted with a proper plaster.
The cast does get a -little- lighter once it has dried - takes a couple of days with the large ones.
Time scale sounds standard for casting with no operation. I considered myself lucky to have mine operated on (plated) and be out of the cast sooner, but it's swings and roundabouts I guess.
Remember to keep the leg up as much as possible.
