 Malunion Problems..HELP!
SAM ANTHA    10:35am May 17 2017

So, I am about 4 months in recovery from a distal spiral tibia and fibula fracture. My fibula is now healed but the tibia is taking a little more time.
I would like to know if anyone has had problems with hardware? I have 3 screws in my ankle and a plate followed by 4 more screws at the top. I am still having pain and consistent swelling around my ankle and leg. Is it too soon for hardware to come out and has anyone had this problem?
It sucks because the swelling and pain is preventing me from moving forward in physio and just being able to walk!! :(
