 Re: screw coming out
TDH    11:54am Sep 23 2019

That happened to me but after around a year and a half. (For my first break/dislocated trimalleolar.) I decided to get the hardware removed. It did help my pain level a good bit to have it removed but at the time the dr said he was only doing it because I was still having so much pain. Mine was sticking out on the fibula side.

With my recent displaced bimalleolar the new ortho said he put the fibula plate “behind the bone” to avoid the screws doing the same thing. Still not sure about that as it still hurts pretty bad. But I am still healing.
