Jones fracture

5 weeks ago I fractured my 5th metatarsal bone(Jones fracture).It had "minimal" displacement.I have been wearing and sleeping in a removable boot and keeping my weight off of the foot.I was warned that it would take 4-6 weeks to heal because the fracture occured in a part of the bone that gets poor blood supply.After two weeks the first set of Xrays showed the bone had not started to heal.My foot doesn't hurt per se,but it is still swollen and it doesn't feel that it is getting any better.I am due for another set of XRays Monday.My question is,is it normal for my foot(and ankle)to be still swollen after five weeks?Thank you very much
