Fractured toe (Proximal Phalanx)

Two weeks ago, I kicked a large heavy box and ended up with a pain that felt wrong, about 1 minute after kicking it I knew something wasnt right, I went to the doctor for an Xray.
They said they would call me if there was anything more than a sprain, one week later I collected my X-ray only to read that it said I had a Proximal Phalanx, Doctor didnt even call me, I had to go back in and see them. They have arrange for me to have another X-ray to see how things are going.

My question is, how long will this remain swollen?
Its still bruised but its not so easy to see the bruise.
The toe I fractured is the big toe.
I can just about walk on it normally now as long as I am careful not to make any great movement I am fine, I dont think I could run as yet (not that I need to anyway)
I am just so curious to know, should it still be swollen even though it doesnt really hurt to much now?
Also how long does it normally take for a mild fracture to heal up?

If someone could help me out with info then please do email rather than just reply to my posted not.

Thank you all in advance
