removing plates and screws
I had a tib/fib fracture about 2 years ago. I have several plates and screws left. I was told that most people remove them after a year. Right now I only have pain in the evening. What happens if I leave all of the plates and screws in? the surgeon said that my bones would be weaker after I remove the screws because it will leave holes in the bone. Wouldn't it be better to leave them in?
