Hi Suzanne,
Did your Dr tell you where the break is or give more info? Was he an ortho? (What is A&E?)If not, I strongly suggest seeing one. I broke my 5th metatarsal Nov19th. Because of the location it is called a Jones's Fracture & is one of the slowest, difficult to heal.
The boot does make a difference, at least in beginning, by keeping it in one place and giving support.
I wore my boot almost 3 months, still have pain & now using bone growth stimulator in the hopes I won't need surgery down the road. Yours may not be a Jones will heal easily, but please see an ortho and post back.
