Patient :I had a fractured patella that took a figure 8 wire and two screws to fix. It is now almost 3 months later and I now have a golf ball size knot above knee cap due to hardware irritation and me constantly feeling it with my hand. It is not broke but irritated. Suggestions on what to do or why it is now swollen.
