I have had my pins out in June of this year. But I am in more pain than when I had them in my ankle. I hate being in pain.

    Hi Lauren

    Has you ankle been xrayed recently?

    Perhaps the repair has broken loose.

    How did the ankle feel before the hardware was removed?

    kind regards

    If your ankle was fused and hardware out causes pain...fusion has broken loose

    if hardware was to hold ankle in position while the bones healed, the loss of stability after having hardware removed can cause pain because your tendons and muscles have not beenvused for quite some time. Tendons attach to bone and pull on the bone when we move.
