Broken Fifth Metatarsal in Foot

Hi at the beginning of November I fell and broke a bone in my foot. I was in plaster for 2 weeks and then have been in a air boot ever since. i had an xray last week and was told it had not healed much and I was to go back in 6 weeks. They told me I could take the boot off when I was at home. This I did and managed to fall down the stairs, landing on the same foot! I am now experiencing pain when I walk which I was not doing before. I telephoned the hospital and they said to keep to the original plan and go back in six weeks but to now keep the boot on all of the time. The worry I have is that should I not be back in plaster. Am I not doing more damage walking on it in the boot.
Any advice would be appreciated.
