Without an examination it is not possible to make a diagnosis and offer treatment. My opinion is that you had a bone infection which tends to recur following injury, exposure or general run down condition. Absolute rest with elevation of the leg on pillows, and heat by hot water bags or electric light is the best treatment. You should also make a supporting frame for the bed covers to keep their weight off the leg.
