pain from untreated fractured elbow

My first post here.. I have never broken anything in my body before so this is all new to me. I am a 38 year old, very active male.. almost 1 year and 6 months ago, I fell and landed on my elbow. It was hurting, but the pain was tolerable. I didn't think anything of it, I went about my business and kept going to the gym. a year later, the pain (on and off) still didn't go away, so I went to the doctor and got an xray done. Apprently I had a hairline fracture and an "abnormal healing"...

Lately, I been feeling pain again, it comes and goes, especially when I am working out at the gym, the head of the elbow also seems swollen comparing to my other arm.. any advice on what my options are? Do I need surgery? Is the pain ever going to go away? Is the swollen due to osteoarthritis? Any advise is highly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
