5th. metatarsal injury

Broke my fifth metatarsal on January 20th , 2004. I've seen an orthopedic doctor, splint was put on my foot temporary for about 6 weeks,
I went back to the doctor, x-rays were taken and seem that fracture is healing doctor didn't ask me to wear anything special or attend PT he said that I should start walking slow until a get fine. I can't walk straight it hurts and still on pain worse at night...Is this normal? what else should I do?
How long would take to recuperate? Please
Any advice you may provide would be greatly appreciated.
