5th metatarsal, bad internal surgery?

i've been out of work from a jones fracture for 7 months. after surgery of an interior fixation screw, the doctor is hesitant (doesn't at all), show me my x-rays. I did notice that the screw is at approximately 40 to 45 degrees from straight, and pokes out the bone between my 4th and 5th met.

does it seem wrong to you that the screw is at an angle, or will it still heal adequetly?
