I have a question, I will be thankful if you help me.I had surgery on my small finger a month ago and the doctor put plates and screws to fix it. I am constantly thinking about hardware removal because I have heard titanium may increase the risk of cancer. Is it true? I am so obsessed with it.
Also, my other question is: Is it harder for surgeons to remove hardware 30 years from now compared to 1 year from now? I have read that over time the bone may grow around the hardware and sometimes surgeons cannot remove it! If it is a case I do the surgery next year rather than 30 years later! Has this ever happened to any surgeon (not being able to remove hardware)?
I appreciate any help.
