 Re: Comminuted Tibial Plateau Fractures
JPL (104.129.198.---)   2:19pm Aug 6 2018

This is my dilemma as well. 5 years (almost) from pilon fracture where I don't feel
limited (other than running) but I still have periods after sitting for a while or long
walks where I am stiffening up/having pain. I don't have any hardware that is
exposing itself (screws coming out) but I keep wondering if I didn't have the HW,
would the pain I feel go away completely? I remember the last thing my OS said
after clearing me for normal activity was "You should never need to take the HW
out." Sort of like saying, "don't ask me to undo all of this." I also asked my
general doctor what his thoughts were and he replied, "I seem to remember you
had a pretty gnarley break, so not sure if it is a good idea." I think it boils down
to asking my OS, but I haven't been comfortable going back to him since I
can't honestly say it is HW and not just a fact of life because it was a "gnarley"
break.
