In brief: Uncommon

Why is difficult to answer. Sometimes insufficient immobilization, too much weight bearing, too little weight bearing, poor blood flow related to smoking (i know you quit), poor diet, and many other possibilities.
Suggest considering bone stimulator vs open reduction internal fixation with possible bone grafting.
