Foot still hurts from having a stress fracture is it healed or should I go back to the doctor it's been 5 months?

Possibly. Need to go back to a doctorand get a followup x-ray and possibly a ct scan to rule out a non-union.
Reevaluation. I think you should go back and have it reevaluated, may have not healed. Stress fractures are usually in areas with tenuous blood supply and sometimes require some therapeutic augmentation to help them heal.
