Advice on 5th metatarsal break

Hi all,
I broke my 5th metatarsal 11 weeks ago this Sunday. I'll try to upload my most recent x-ray for ye to see. Basically I'm very unhappy with the doctor as I have no real indication of how much longer I'll be healing before I'm fully right. I walk with no pain typically, tried running tonight and had pain alright and some lingering pain afterwards which I know is a bad sign anyway. The pain wasn't particularly severe but still. I was wondering is it possible the pain could be from soft tissue and not the break itself? Even though the bone is still clearly missing a chunk on the x-ray, which brings me to my next point, is it possible the bone is healed but not healed radiographically yet? Thanks for any help on the matter!
