Fibular Sesamoid Stress Fracture

Hello, I have a fibular sesamoid stress fracture and the podiatrist I visited is recommending i have it removed, is there anybody who has had this done that could comment on the outcome? Does it impair foot use/athletic activity? I injured my foot 4 months ago (March 2006) and have not stayed off it properly so it hasn't healed. The Dr. said even with conservative treatment (icing, anti-inflammatories, foot insoles) the fractures sometimes don't heal. Should I do surgery or get a cast first?
