 good IM removal resource
Embonious    1:24pm Nov 26 2019

Hi all,
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.

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!
