Hi,

I broke my fibula when I was five months pregnant. It was a spiral fracture so I needed surgery to reduce the fracrure by having a plate and pins. After my daughter was born, the swelling went down but I was still experiencing pain. The orthopedist removed the hardwarea year later and the pain disappeared. Good luck to you.

Hi, That is good to hear. Since my last post, I did have the hardware and screws removed. I am happy to say that pain is gone. I had my surgery 2 weeks ago to remove the hardware so I am feeling the affects of that. I hope it doesn't last long.
