Avulsion fracture of second toe not healing...

I broke my toe 5 weeks ago and it is still painful and swollen. I saw my docotor at about 3 weeks and he took X-rays to compare to the original X-Rays and said that it still had not healed at all and it sustatined an avulsion fracture. I was just wondering if this is normal after five weeks to have so much swelling and pain? Should I be walking or using crutches at this point? Do these types of fractures ever require surgery?
