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.

I know nothing about this in particular, but wanted to offer my support and caring for your suffering. One question pops into my mind. What does your doctor say about keeping the plate?
