Another little surgery this morning

They took one of the screws out my leg this morning. Was not to big a deal, got a morning cocktail of versad, they took the screw out and I am back home allready (probably 10g+ later!) Feelin fine too, just a little pain in my leg.

They had to remove a screw from the rod in my tibia so that my bone would start to bear some weight, rather than just the rod.

I'll get the screw in 10 days, I'll post pics then.

Pain isnt too bad, nothing like it used to be. Mostly off the killers, dont take em often. Ussually only if I have alot to accomplish, over did things the day before, or just need a mental break from feeling like I am broken. They did just give me a script for 30 norcos for having the screw removed

Except for bad days and mornings I get around pretty good, even played golf a few times.

How bout you, where you at in the world of recovery? You getting around pretty good?

hey man, I hhave a rod and 5 screws just over two years ago, and I still feel some pain, (to this date, i can't run :/: ) what was your particular case? I've been wondering for over a year if taking the screws out may help (fukk the rod, I'm keeping it, after watching a video on what's involved in removing it)

i wrecked about 5 months ago, broke most of my right side. (leg arm ribs back) as far as my leg i got a plate on one side of my ankle and a rod through the tibia and a screw through the other side of the ankle...cant run, but am getting around pretty good. (actually I can kinda run it just looks fubared and aint much faster than walking)

as far as the screws and the rod you gotta remove the screws so that the bone starts to bear weight and not just the rod. Bones need stress (weight) on em to be healthy. ie austronauts go to space for long time and their bones get brittle because they have not been stressed due to weightlessness.

I want the rod removed eventually so that if I break my leg again it will be able to be fixed. Have only heard bad things about rod removal, have not seen the video, send it my way if you run across it again.

well that good man, I'm glad your doing better.


I'm def. getting better, but they took me off all the pain killers, so I can't work as long.
