How long can I play with a stress fracture without costs?

In brief: HOW LONG.....

Until it heals on its own, or evolves into a complete fracture where you can't walk/play anymore.
It's a roll of the dice.

In brief: Stress fracture

If its in your feet it needs to be treated its costing you everyday you do not treat it i would see a specialist like a podiatrist if its in your foot , these usually take 6 weeks to heal when they are treated.

In brief: You can't.

A stress fracture creates a weak area in the bone that can, with additional stress and without warning, propagate completely through the bone and even displace.
Depending on the location of the fracture, this can have serious consequences increasing significantly the length of recovery, frequently necessitating surgery, and sometimes threatening one's future athletic participation.
