Iím kind of on both ends of the removal spectrum. My first Tib/fib break the doctor did not want to remove the plate and nails by my knee, he said it was fine and could stay in forever. This most recent break my doctor is already talking about removing the hardware as soon as possible.
But in the end it is really your choice not your doctorís, and I want all this metal out of my body! X3
