 Re: What to expect after plates and screws removed
Kate B    8:25pm Aug 8 2018

I haven’t had my hardware removed, but from what I understand it is a much easier recovery than the initial break and surgery. If the breaks a healed you shouldn’t have to go back in a cast and from what I hear most people walk out on their own after HW removal.

4/18/16 Tripped - Sprained left ankle, broke right - displaced oblique fib fx, dislocated tibiotalar joint, fx med. malleolus
4/25 ORIF 1 plate, 8 screws, ligament repair
6/6 boot, 50%WB
6/20 FWB, PT
Driving at the 3 month mark, continuing improvement
