 Recovery after IM nail removal
Kasia    6:32am Oct 19 2017

Dear All!

I am 10 months after a severe open tib/fib fracture treated with static IM nail. My bones healed completely and the hardware can be removed. My OS advice is to do it since I am quite young (31 yo), very active (risk of reinjury), nail is made of stainless steel (poor biocompatibility, may cause problems in the future) and I still feel discomfort in my leg (pain here and there, stiffness etc.). I am going to have the surgery in December/January.

I went through this forum and found some discussions that were very helpful but quite old, so I am posting it again.

Could you please share your experience with IM nail removal. I am mostly interested in recovery timeframe and possible complications. When did you get back to work and sports? Are you happy with your decision? Would you do it again? I will be grateful for any response. Thank you!
