Thanks for writing to us.
I feel that there is a bony injury involved which has malunited in all these 7 weeks. You need to get an X-ray of the area done to detect any such injury. An MRI scan is recommended to find out a soft tissue abnormality or a tendon injury.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
