Fracutered 5h metatarsel 9 mths ago......still SWOLLEN

Hi
i fractured my 5th metatarsel in my left foot 9 mths ago. the Doc in the ER said it would require surgery. however, the orthopedic surgeon said it would not and therefore put my foot in a removable cast for 2 mths. he said i could start walking immediately!
i COULDNT THOUGH! the pain was severe and so was the swelling.
9 mths later...now.....i still have a bump at the broken spot.....its still swells along with my ankle. the orthopedic surgeon says "ya there is a bump...nothing i can really do though"

what do i do? PLEASE HELP!

The proprietary gel also provides extra protective padding to help comfort the pain caused by metatarsal soreness. May be used for relieving the burning sensation under the metatarsal heads, calluses and tarsal fat pads.
