Bone Stimulation for Jones Fracture

Earlier I wrote to you about my Jones fracture.At week 5,the xrays showed there was no bone callus,however my DPM said he did see a grey area between the fracture and said that was a sign of healing.The swelling appears to be going down a bit and my foot feels "firmer".He said that (as you suggested)most insurance companies will not pay for bone stimuation until it is determined after 3 or 4 months that there is no union.I understand that I have to be patient with this injury.That's not a problem.My questions are-should I be more insistent with regard to pursuing bone stimulation sooner than 3 or 4 months,given there is no bone callus?After how many weeks in a boot and keeping my weight off the foot and no union will it be before I go to the next course of treatment(ie,surgery?)Thank you very much
