I broke my tib and fib at the ankle ends in February last year and had to have ORIF on the tibia as it was a very bad break. I have a plate with several screws in. Although I have all but recovered (apart from stiffness and a little numbness still) I find the plate is a nuisance because I have no fat or muscle over the top of the plate, just skin and I can feel the plate. I would dearly like to have it removed but wonder if anyone out there has had this operation? I was out of circulation for several months whilst I was healing from the break and don't want to have to be incapacitated again before it heals. Any info you could give me would be appreciated.
