I had a fall which resulted in some facial fractures for which I had surgery for a couple of weeks later. I needed 2 titanium plates and 8 screws to secure my bones back into position. Unfortunately, the plate around my eye socket has become palpable, really uncomfortable and sensitive to cold weather etc, so I am soon to have this removed.
I am wondering if this is another major operation or pretty straight forward? I can't find much online about this kind of procedure. I had some severe swelling and bruising following my first surgery. It was a 2.5 hour operation and I got a lovely case of Shingles 5 days later around my eye and ear and all down one side of my face, so recovery was pretty tough.
Any information anyone can share regarding this type of surgery would be much appreciated.
