?First of all, Happy New Year! We don't have long and I hope 2017 brings everyone reading this, happiness, health and wealth.
?On Friday, May 13th, I had hardware put in my left ankle. My left ankle has pretty much frozen, (I did have 8 weeks of PT) but I am able to walk either with a very slight limp or a bad limp. I'm just thankful I'm able to walk! Period.
My surgeon is going to be removing two screws on January 9th. He said it was a very simple surgery that would take 20 minutes. He told me I would be able to go to work the next day. I'll only miss the one day, for the surgery. He did say I would be put to sleep, for this surgery.
?I know some surgeons leave the screws in, but mine takes them out. I really like him a lot, so I'm going to do what he says.
If anyone else has had screws removed and would care to share your experiences and/or advice, (good or bad),I would really appreciate that, so very much.
?I've been fortunate, because I had no issues from the surgery and no complications after the surgery, when he put the hardware in. Other than my frozen left ankle, I'm doing fine. My doctor did say that when he removes the two screws, it "could" give me more motion in that ankle.
?Anyway, HAPPY NEW YEAR and thank you again for any advice or suggestions.
