I was in a car wreck last October that really messed up my ankle.
Both bones were broken and surgery was done to repair it.
I have a plate with screws going up the fibula and a long pin going up the tibia.
The OS that did the surgery placed the plate with too much of an angle and so my ankle is cocked off to the right at an angle.
It is very painful, and has stayed swollen since the surgery.
I am unable to wear most shoes that I would like to and I go back to the pain factor.
I know that it will need to be re-broken and put back correctly, but I cannot do that for at least another year due to College.
Would having the plate and pin taken out be helpful or at least alleviate some pain?
I do not know a single person that has something similar and I really need some advice!!!
Thanks in advance~Stephanie
