I had ORIF on my ankle 6 months ago (Bimalleolar Fracture), 7 screws and one plate.
I dont have any major issues no pain, and not much swelling (as I have a 9-5 office job so I dont really move much). However I do feel the difference in stiffness - I was advised to take out the hardware now so i can recover quicker and won't cause any issues in the long term. I am booked in to take this out next month.
Is there anyone out there that has been in the same situation, and if you can let me know the recovery time, pain etc. My surgeon tells me as it is taking the hardware out that recovery time is only max 1 week and I will be back on my feet as per normal.
