 Re: screw coming out
Embonious    5:59am Sep 27 2019

Hi, I have a screw that feels increasingly prominent below my knee (I have an IM nail inside my tibia from knee to ankle, the screws through the bone/nail. I will have my removal once my bones are fully healed, it has been recommended by my surgeon since the beginning. I'm curious, was your screw actually backing out? I have been wondering if it's just less swelling around the screws in that area.

14 Sept 2018- hit by car, compound open tib/fib fracture etc, emergency surgery IM nail + screws
19 Sept 2018- released from hospital, NWB
04 Dec 2018- allowed 30%, working towards 100% WB indoors
18 Feb 2019- First steps!
