Some of my HW gave me no end of trouble. 2 screws in my medial maleolus (inside ankle bump) suddenly started causing breathtaking pain almost exactly 1 year after they were installed. Meanwhile, the plate and screws on my fibula were interfering with a tendon, causing tendonitis that got worse everyday for almost a year. The only thing that ended the pain was the removal of the HW.
After my HWR's (2 of them, 3 months apart), my NWB downtime was 24 self imposed hours. My reduced activity time was until the stitches were removed (10 days after the first HWR, and 2 weeks after the second). Was I pain free after that? No, but I was better! And I continued to GET better!
Fully recovered from Pilon tib/fib
2 Plates, 10 screws, 2 HWR's,
1 Plate & 3 Screws left
