I didn't have your problem but I did have something that seemed odd about 7 months after my break. And the reason I am mentioning it is that you live in Vermont. I also live on the East coast. I ended up with lyme and the symptoms went straight to my broken leg. For me it was enormous swelling in my knee where they had inserted the rod through. My primary care doctor said that lyme often goes to the weak spots. I was on antibiotics for 4 weeks and it eventually went away.
So it probably isn't Lyme but I guess you might want to check with you regular doctor just to be safe.
Hope it gets better soon.
