Re: screw/plate for broken arm problems
I broke my arm around 5 years ago, they did surgery and put in a plate with a number of screws. Just recently I started having some pain in the arm where the plate is. I went to a surgeon and he took some really fancy x-rays and there it was one screw was longer than the other. His suggestion was that I could have the plate surgically removed or just live with it. It doesn't happen all the time, but occasionally I extend my arm and the pain is just terrible. Thank goodness it is just occasionally. I'm hoping that I can tolerate it because I certainly do not want additional surgery.
