fractured metatorsal lttle toe

I fractured my foot while trveling in Kansas and drove back to Dallas to the Er where they took x-rays and sent to a doctor there, I had 3 cast on while there and then they sent me home with a boot and said the x-rays showed it was healing slowly. It has been going on the 7 week now and I still don't feel up to par it still is swelling up and the other foot that I sprang at the same time has a lot of pain under the instep.
I don''t know if I should fly back to Dallas or try to find someone to look at it here,is it ok to fly again with the swelling, should I try to walk on it, do I need to move around more on it, all I do is lay down, and don't move it. my legs hurt too from not moving them. How long does it take for the swelling to subside
should I be worried? what can I do to help the swelling to go down? Tahnk you. Joanie

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.
