bone stimulator vs. surgery

I was in a bad auto accident in November. I crushed my leg and broke 7 bones in my foot. I was still in severe pain on the ball of my foot. After several sets of xrays my Dr. dismissed me and said I had RSD. After a second Drs. oppinion and a bone scan I found out I had a stress fracture in the 2nd metarsal. I have been wearing a post op shoe for 10 weeks and since they found the fracture I have been using a bone stimular ultrasound machine(aprox. 5 weeks) Two weeks ago after xrays to ck on the 2nd metarsal they found a stress fracture in the 3rd metarsal. I am continuing with the bone stimulator and the post op shoe. Do you think surgery is an option? Thanks Pat

A silicone insert on the back of the Achillotrain leaves tendon pressure-free and provides intermittent compression for the reduction of swelling and edema.
