Orthopaedic Surgeon, Joint Replacement 's  Response
You have not mentioned when you had this surgery. If it was then more then 3 months back and still you are having pain and swelling it means that the fracture has not been united. If it was less that 3 months then it is too early to start work so I would suggest you to repeat x ray of the fracture bone.
