Hi everyone. This forum has been great framing my recovery. I had ORIF with 6 screws and a plate for a dislocated ankle and fib fracture. Sept 7 2016. My six week checkup was perfect, but at my 12 week, I had broken a screw and my ankle was *slightly dislocated. I noticed some stiffness and more swelling about a week before the 12 week, which I suspect is from the broken screw.
My doctor advised me if the tib/fib gap widens any more I will need to have the surgery redone, check back in 3 months. He said the other screw is in place and the one broken screw only increases the unlikely chance it will have to be redone.
Has anyone had a similar experience?
