Exclamation Broken foot 4 months ago

Hi everyone, I broke my foot(5th metatarsal) 4 or so months ago. When I went to the hospital they put me in a cast for 4 weeks, and I ended up goig back after two weeks as the heel Of the cast has not set properly. When I went back they have me an air cast ( big gray boot) once I got the air cast the told me I could just walk out using it! So after 2 weeks I was walking in the boot with one bad broken foot. When I went back after 6 weeks (total of 8 altogether) the doctor in the fracture clinic told me to take the boot off, I took I off and then he told me I was ready to go! Should I have gotten another x ray? In the 8 weeks I only got one initial x ray to say it was broken!

Anyway 4 months on my foot still has a lump where the bone was broken! Also sometimes the lump is red, also if you touch it the bone moves in and out! I am really concerned and am Wondering whether it the bone has set wrong ? Or if in just fussing about nothing.
Any responses are helpful thank you

I can not figure out how anyone would know your fracture was healed without an xray. None of this sounds normal to me. I know my orthopedic surg released me on Sept 1, but if I continue to have the discomfort that I have now I will go back the first of Oct and have him re xray. I would get a second opinion.
