 Hardware removal
Erin Lea    9:27am May 2 2018

Hi!

This forum was a huge help 2 years ago when I fractured my ankle. I was just a lurker though.

I have a question about hardware removal. I'm having surgery tomorrow to remove the plate and 7 screws from my ankle.

Has anyone done this with just local anesthesia? I know it doesn't go as deep as the bone so I will feel pain as the screws are being removed. I believe I can control the pain with breathing and meditation. Thoughts?

Thanks!
