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.

That is great to hear. Glad it worked for you. I had mine removed two weeks ago and the pain is gone. Just have to recover from this surgery. Two surgeries in 1 year is enough for me.

Hello, Thanks for your response. I did have the hardware/screws removed. The pain I had is gone but now just have to deal with the after surgery conditions. I'm glad your surgery went well.

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.

Oct 30, 2018 · Removal of plate and screws from tibia fracture in Bones, Joints & Muscles

Hello, I broke my tibia in April 2018 and had surgery to insert a plate and 9 screws. I have pain walking every day all day. The surgeon has recommended having the plate/screws removed. I am reluctant to do it because the surgeon said he can't guarantee the pain will be gone. I'm not sure if it would be worth it to have incisions, remove screws, slide the plate out, have anesthesia and get stitched back up. I was wondering if anyone has experienced this type of surgery and if so, was it worth it.
