Hi Felicia..
Sorry for the late reply. How's your foot now. I hope the fracture must have united by now, and hope it must have been kept immobilized in a plaster cast for some time. I also hope the pain and swelling must have subsided. If the answers to above questions is still NO..better get a fresh X-ray now and mail a scanned copy to
Good day
