I'm still a year away from my hardware removal, but never too soon to start researching! :)
I found a great resource for those curious about the experience here: https://jakemcmillan.wordpress.com/2012/01/27/im-nail-removal-your-experiences/
Since the start of the month, I've gone back to 5 days at work per week for the first time since my injury, and the fracture pain, swelling, and hardware pain has been tough mentally. It's helpful to read how improved people felt after getting all the metal out- a good reminder that this too is temporary in the grand scheme of things.
