    Thank you for your story I'm due to have plate and screws removed on 9th Dec and was a bit worried about the after pain and movement the doctor said I would be able to fully weight bare

    But would need to be extra careful as the screw holes can take about 6 weeks to fill in I go on holiday 31st Jan so it only just fits in I'm praying no complications and will be great to walk with no feeling of scaffolding around my ankle /leg god bless thanks for sharing regards dawn
