 Removing Screws
Robert Zambenini (47.149.219.---)   10:33am Jan 28 2018

My lower leg fracture is not closing after 6 weeks but surgeon is letting me put a little weight on, like 20 percent but no walking.
Of course this was a bit unforeseen news and as we were leaving he said we might take out the upper screws.
In trying to understand this before we see him again in 3 weeks, does anyone have any clue on why do you take out screws?
I don't have any pain in the surgery leg. Still have a little swelling in the foot but was able to get on the shoe for a short while yesterday.
