5th metatarsal fracture

I fractured my 5th metatarsal 5 wks ago pretty badly (displaced) and have been on an aircats and crutches ever since. When does bone healing begin and if anyone else has done this, how long before I can walk w/o the crutches and just the aircast? I have to fly to California for a wedding - is it ok to fly 5 hours? Are there any vitamins, etc. I can take to aid bone growth?

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.
