 Re: Hardware and boots
dcb    1:14am Feb 23 2017

Probably be okay once properly healed and after the swelling has gone down - could take several months. If the plate does cause problems you can ask for it to be removed.They won't do that until at least 12-18 months, and the bone will be weaker until the screw holes fill in. I thought mine was causing problems for about a year but it seems okay now.

Good luck!
