'Boxers break' is a term used for a break to the scaphoid, not the 5th metacarpal.
After a break of any bone, the soft and connective tissue take longer to heal than the bone itself. It will settle down with time and sensible use.
i respect your service in the forces, but dont bring war stories onto a health and fitness forum, completely irrelevant to your topic.

BOXER'S FRACTURE
A boxer’s fracture is a broken bone (fracture) in the hand near the knuckle of the fifth finger. This injury usually occurs in professional fighters, but it can occur in non-fighters when punching a hard object like a cement wall. With appropriate treatment and normal alignment of the bones, healing can be expected in about 4 to 6 weeks. Occasionally, surgery is necessary to re-align the bones of the hand.

Symptoms
Pain, tenderness, swelling (especially the back of the hand), and later bruising of the hand
Visible deformity if the fracture is complete
Loss of normal prominence of the knuckle at the little finger
Numbness from swelling in the hand, causing pressure on the nerves (uncommon)

Complications
Fracture does not heal (nonunion)
Fracture heals in a bad position, causing twisting of the finger when making a fist. (malunion)

in order from the wrist: Scaphoid, trapezium, 5th metacarpal. A 'Boxers break' traditionaly is referred to (in Britain at least) as when the impact is transferred (via poor technique ie. punching wrong) into the scaphoid causing it damage. the 3 bones listed are small and close together, and injury to one, will cause referred pain to the others, as well as inflamation of all the connective tissue and musculature, of which there is a huge amount to allow for all the fine motor skills possible in the hand.

My advice stands regardless of what bone is injured. Bones have a fantastic blood supply and heal far quicker than tendon and ligament.

Learn to punch properly for the future, and you will minimise the chance of this happening. One hand can be excused, but both is just careless.

Cord, in defence of Liljb, his 'war-stories' were in response to my comment about the need to have fit hands to function in battle.

Sorry if this took us off track.
