5th metatarsal not heeling

I have been seeing a podiatrist for my 5th metatarsal Avulsion Fracture. I have been in the "boot" in conjunction with the "bone stimulator" for approx. 3 months. There has been absolutely no progress to date and my Dr. has suggested surgery and also suggested that I get a second opinion. Do you have any suggestions? Should I be seeing an orthopedic doctor instead? Any light that you can shed on this subject would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.

A layer of gel combined with a foot cover to help protect metatarsals and toes from friction and pressure. It also ideal for cushioning the ball of foot and provides warmth for people suffering from arthritis or poor circulation to the toes.
