Welcome to the Pain Management Forum. Geez... a stress fracture that doesn't heal in two years???? I'd want to know why!!!
A stress fracture is like any other fracture other than it's cause. They should heal in 6-8 weeks depending on certain factors. They should not take years to heal!!
Have you consulted an orthopedist recently? If not I would do so. If you're being told it's "normal" to have an unhealed fracture for two years I'd look for another physician. That's where your answers will be found.
