In brief: Need to determine

how the bone is healing.
I assume you have had discussions with your doc? what did they say? was this a jones fracture? what type of fixation was used?

In brief: Those Darn Fifths.

It is not unusual for the 5th metatarsal to take a little longer to totally heal.
Allot of pain after six months is a reason to have it examined. Walking or not, the pain is an indication that something may be amiss.
