I broke my fibular at my ankle and tore the ligament attaching the fibular and tibia nearly 10 weeks ago. I had surgery and 7 pins inserted to support the bone/ligament. A week ago I had the all clear to "ween myself off the boot and then the crutches" about 2 days after this i started to feel three of the pins through my skin, it isn't painful but I am just worried. I was wondering if anyone has had the same experience? Its probably just because the pins are in my ankle and there's not as much fat/skin there so I don't want to waste time getting an xray etc if it's common. I have rang my gp and the hospital that I had the surgery but neither were very helpful.
Look forward to reading your replys!
