My girlfriend has what I would assume is a medial
Can be due to chronic inflamamtion.
Thanks for posting your query.
If there is a persistent swelling in the area even after two years of surgical fixation then it can be due to an inflammation in the area or a nerve related pain. You need to get her CT scan done and if possible get the implant removed to reduce any inflammation in the area. This can help in reducing the pain that she has. You need to consult her orthopedician as well as a neurologist for proper management.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
