 screw coming out
Cindy.    7:26pm Sep 20 2019

Hi. It's been 10 years on this website. I broke my tibia and fibula and dislocated my ankle in 2009. I got a plate and a few screws during surgery. Everything went well, until now.

I had pain in my foot/back of the ankle for the last 3-4 weeks. I thought I had somehow pulled my achilles tendon. Not being a fan of going to the doctor, I waited to see if it might heal on its own.

Last night I realized that I felt better and the pain was gone. So I looked down at my foot/ankle to see how it looked. Oddly, I noticed a little bump on my ankle bone. And when I felt it, it feels like one of the screws is coming out. It sticks out (under the skin) about 1/8 inch.

I'm wondering if anyone has experienced anything like this? I will go check it out with my doctor, but I'm out of town on business for a week, so it will have to wait till I'm back home.

Thanks for replying, those that do.
