Hi there.. I couldn't find any X-ray attached to this question... hairline fracture of other metatarsals wouldn't require cast or immobilization for long but hairline fracture or stress fracture of 5th metatarsal needs immobilization upto 4-5weeks or till there is evidence of healing on X-ray.. so stil another week or two, don't remove plaster and avoid weight bearing over that foot..
