Keep your chin up. As you can see from my previous e-mails, I was getting fustrated as well, and it helps to keep a positive attitude.
I still have very bad swelling in mine, and i do still have a little pain, but that will subside. I just got back from getting a massage, which really really helped!!!
My doctor said there was no need to take the plate a screws out. They do not cause any problem and there is no reason to have a 2nd surgery to remove them.
He gave me a card stating that i have metal hardware in my leg, but it was titanium and did not set off the alarms at the airport. I would ask for one just to be safe!
