Broken Foot Questions

I broke two bones in my foot on July 28. I'm still in one of those black boot walkers. It still hurts to put any pressure on my foot. I've tried to sleep without the boot but the pain still wakes me up. I can walk without crutches but only for so long and then the pain and swelling makes it impossible. x-rays show that there is only minimal healing. The swelling gets so bad my entire leg swells up. People ask why the Dr didn't put a cast on me instead of the boot. My foot slides around unless I tighten the velcro straps really tight and then the straps are pushing on the broken part causing more pain. The broken bones are the two right in front of two of my toes on the top of my foot. Brusing is also still present on the bottom on my foot from the accident. Do I need to do something different? I don't want surgery but it looks like I'm facing another month or more wearing this boot thing. I don't want to continue doing something that is not working for another month.
Thanks, Cathy

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.
