Localised swelling remains below ball of foot despite sesamoidectomy

    I had a tibial sesamoidectomy a month ago. It was fractured and was an avn. Initially this was identified as the cause of localised swelling below the sesamoid area. I suspected tendinitis of one of the flexor tendons as well but this was dismissed by my surgeon who said it was a result of the fracture and nothing showed on ultrasound or mri. This swelling still persists. Although I have slightly limited range I can move my toe up and down without discomfort and am progressing with PT.

    This area of swelling is quite localised and is slightly tender to touch. Obviously it may yet settle after the surgery and I can seek out yet another opinion but wondered if anyone had seen anything like it and what was it.
