Metatarsal stress fracture-ok to walk in boot? Originally non- weight bearing, then limited with crutches. Not healed, still sore, swollen- 3 months.

In brief: Sounds Amiss.

If it is still swollen and still painful after three months, then it is.
more that likely not healed. It makes no sense to continue to put pressure on an apparently unstable fracture. You need to have it re-evaluated to determine the true extent of the healing or non-healing, whichever it may be.
