Wow 5 years and you are still thinking about it. Yikes! I'm afraid that I will be in the same position.
Though it has has been less than a year I too have nerve pain and no feeling in parts of my leg. My foot often feels like it is on fire. But I see that you have a calcified lump on your tibia. I have new bone growth on the rod that they inserted and I am wondering if that is the same. Has it caused you additional pain? I am amazed that I still have a limp and keep wondering if it will go away. And yes the screws below my knee are annoying most of the time and I plan on having them removed in the near future.
I imagine these issues aren't as big for you as they once were yet not fun to still have to think/deal with these things. Definitely a life changer.
