5th metatarsal Jone’s fracture K-wire removal
Dr. Abrams, my fracture has healed perfectly.
The orthopedic specialists says that he cannot see where the break even was located.
There are 2 wires outside the underside of the bone, where the wires are twisted together.
I am walking fairly well but with a little discomfort.
I work for UPS and am on my feet literally 9 hours a day hustling boxes.
Any advice? If I choose to have them removed, how much time would it take before I’m back to work?
Additionally, will the wires calcify over time, making my decision to be made now rather than later?
