I broke a bone in my foot. How long before it's healed?

I broke a bone in my foot last night while attempting to race up twisty stairs barefooted. Lost my footing, came down on the side of my foot wrong.. heard a "pop". I thought it was just a sprain or something until I went to the doctor this morning - they sent me home with the ugly shoe.

It hurts. I'm just whining. Anyone else break bones in their feet? How long is this healing really going to take? The doctor said 3-6 weeks, which is a pretty long span for the ugly shoe. For comparison's sake, it's the 5th metatarsal on my right foot.
