 Re: Comminuted Tibial Plateau Fractures
Kate B    8:51pm Aug 8 2018

I’m almost 2.5 years out from my broken ankle and am considering getting a tattoo over my lovely scars, (but I have to wait 5 years for the scar tissue to heal). I don’t want to run into problems with the hardware after I get the tattoo so I went back to my OS about a year ago. When I asked about hardware removal, his response was, “I don’t make decisions based on tattoos”. In other words, unless there is a medical need he won’t remove my plate and screws.

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
