Varies: There are a number of potential causes including a nonunion of your fracture, the development of post-traumatic arthritis in adjacent joint, an associated soft tissue injury, irritation by a pin or screw are among the many possible causes. Don't hesitate to follow up with your surgeon to discuss your specific case.
