Hello! i had a trimalleolar break a little over a year ago. i have a plate and 8 screws on side, 1 screw in the middle of my tibia, and 2 screws on the inside part of my ankle, and 2 syndesmotic sutures. I havent had any problems, but today i have had a little pain on the side where the plate is. I didnt really give it any thought until i looked at it a little bit ago and i have a huge knot, right in the middle of where my plate is. Like its really big, very tender, and starting to throb. Has anyone had their plates do this? Specifically a year or longer after surgery? i havent, to my knowledge, done anything to it to irritate it.
