See ortho doc: Sounds like a post traumatic arthritis affecting you. See your ortho or PMR doc for correct post X Ray diagnosis, and treatment plan

At 18 years old it is doubtful that arthritis has developed. there may be hardware(if still inside) or articular abnormalities. must be fully evaluated with xray and possibly MRI scan
