Comment : IM removal
Posted by Ali on Sun 10:37am 14 July 2013


I finally had my rod removed! Its been 3 .5 years and I can't wait to run on it. The reasons I had it removed were pain associated with walking long distances (esp on hard surfaces, like the street), inability to run more than 1 mile, and an inability to jump. The pain was located where the screws were on the ankle and inside of the knee as well as the shaft where the fracture occurred. I am now 11 days post op and FWB. the sutures are doing great and my battle is with the swelling, which causes soreness and stiffness. I spend a few hours a day with my leg up. The pain in minimal and kept at bay by IB profuen. I am already aware that the screws are gone and it is amazing! I still have a funky walk, but I am getting around just fine. I will update this post on my progress if anyone is interested :)
