Broken 5th metatarsal

I broke my 5th metatarsal the beginning of June 2004. The xray showed a stress fracture on the top of the bone on the distal end(nearest the toe). I wore a walking boot for a until early August and another xray showed that the bone was beginning to "hollow out" - as my doctor described it. He said to stop wearing the boot as long as it didn't cause too much pain and not worry about it.
I am concerned because it is still achey and sore. I want to know what exercises, etc. I should do to help it heal.

This slip-on device is a soft and stretchable Nylon/Lycra® fabric molded with a proprietary gel pad to protect the entire Achilles tendon of the foot by absorbing pressure and friction resulted from rubbing with the surface of the shoe.
