5th metetarsal stress fracture

I have a 5th metetarsal stress fracture. The first Dr. I saw told me that it required surgery and refered me to the surgen. The surgen does not want to do surgery, he wants it to heal on its own. It happened on Oct28th 2005 and it still swells, hurts and turns a purpleish color on my toes. Should I get another surgical opp.? Also what can I do to keep my good foot from hurting. I feel like I am starting to get the same pain in it that I had before I broke the other foot?

The built-in arch stabilizer provides support for greater stability.
