See doctor: Hard to say without examining. Can be left with a chronic pain syndrome where the damage had recovered but the nerves remain active. And that might be why nothing is found. If this is the case your gp can refer you to a pain clinic. Best to see a doctor and get examined and go from there

Pain hip: Some times people can have issues with lymphatic drainage in the limbs and can give swelling in legs. Given that things have been fine over 10 years and MRI looks good , talk to your surgeon for further evaluation with regards to infection and possible lymphatic issues
