5th metatarsal

Hello, I broke my 5th metatarsal on April 11th 2002 and also twisted my ankcle and pulled the ligaments on my right foot, today I am still not able to work and my foot still has pain and swelling, PT told me to use it, which I have been and I ice it when it swells the last x-ray told my ortho. that it was almost 90% healed, I am 53 and was told by my DR. that it takes longer because I'm older? I get a burning sharp pain sometimes in the break area is this normal? I have to go back 26 August for a x-ray. my company have been very good so far but with what I have read I feel like I should be able to go back to work by now.
