See your surgeon: 3 years post-op orif hip fx. W/ persistent pain and swelling warrants an evaluation by your surgeon.Infection, blood clot , painful hardare or non-union of the fracture could al explain this.Would help to know what u have:tfn, cannulated screws, bipolar, etc?See your ors for an evaluation.
