Orthopaedic Surgeon, Joint Replacement 's  Response

Hi, thanks for writing to HCM.

It is very unusual and abnormal for a bone to remain ununited for a period of 6 years and is still hurting. There could be some underlying problem for it.

A detailed clinical examination and appropriate investigations are needed to establish the diagnosis.

I suggest you to consult an orthopedic sugeon for further workup and management.

Hope this information is helpful. Good day
