What can happen if a stress fracture was not treated?

A few months ago I had a doctor diaganose me with a stress fracture of my 5th met. Yet because of insurance that same doctor was unable to treat me. I never did get it treated properly due to the ammount of time it took to get an appointment made. The question is that I am getting some of those same pains back in the exact same area. What are some concerns that I may have due to it not being treated originally? Will I get another fracture and if I do what will the treatment be? Could it be a cast and crutches? Thanks

The Active Ankle offers flexibility and security. It will feel different from anything you have ever worn for ankle protection. The hinge allows freedom of motion that you may not be accustomed to. Do not mistake this freedom of movement for lack of support. A leading university said, the Active Ankle provides more support (inversion) than the leading air-stirrup brace, the leading lace-up brace, or a tape job.
