Stress Fracture of 1st Metatarsal

Hello, I have a marching stress fracture of the 1st metatarsal. So far it's been 20wks, 8wks in a shoe cast and 12wks in a hard cast. I've just had the hard cast removed and my xrays showed no callus. The fracture still hasn't healed. The doctor put me in a walking cast boot for 6wks asn of the present. Should I have surgery since I've been off my feet for 12wks straight. What should I do? Currently I still have horrible pain but shall return to work Jan. 5th 04 in the walking cast with vicodin/Motrin for the pain. Help Me! Please. Thanks Will
