I got an image cd of my right ankle last Monday when I had an accident at home. I looked at the images that night, but I must have been too tired to focus on them.
Over the next couple of days, I had a nagging feeling of dread, and decided to look at the images again, and did so last Thursday.
I have software to look at the images and found the option to zoom and pan in on the images to look closer at them.
I noticed the hardware in my fibula like I did last Monday night. But I looked closer at the 4 anchors. 3 looked normal, but the 4th had a bent tip, and it looked like it was protruding through the fibula and rubbing against the tibia.
I don't know for sure, but there have been times where I've moved my ankle a certain way and had a sudden jolt of pain rip through my ankle.
In November, the atfl ripped right off the bone where the anchors are.
I was told that this could have played a factor in the anchor moving.
I see my surgeon in just over a week, but I'm going to be wondering until then.
I don't know if anyone has heard of this happening, Google is useless for this topic.
