HI Dear,
As per my understanding, the implant is in place for more than a year without any problem. In case it did not suit you, you would have had problem much before. Also, you got it checked and it is in place. So i think there is no connection between your sore elbow and the implant. Please consult an orthopedician

Thanks for posting your query on health care magic.
I don't think there is any link of patch with the sore.
Both are different entity.
I suggest you to continue using implant.
Sore needs to be examined and treated by a doctor.
Hope this helps.
