yes it is possible to have pain and swelling with bones fused together.
i would also have liked to rule out abscess and arthritis in blood called rheumatiod arthritis because they also present in the same way.
would suggest visit a specialist to get some investigations further done and be give medication that are strong painkillers, medication to increase lubrication of the joint.
hope to have answered your query.
get well soon.
