Today marks one year since my fracture occurred. I had fixation surgery with a plate and seven screws. 3 months ago I had the hardware removed due to screws rubbing on tendons. I still save pain everyday. My knee feels like it wants to explode. I am currently on my second round of six week PT. Very discouraged. Anyone have these problems?

Hello, I'm sorry to hear that you still have pain. I know what that feels like. I've had pain every day all day for one year since the plate and screws were put in. I've since had that removed and have other pains I'm dealing with. I just wish I could be pain free but I don't know if that is going to happen. Hang in there.
