Re: Pain in past broken ulna with plate & screws
I just had the hardware installed on my ulna last month.
I asked my Orthopedic surgeon about the long-term effects of having the hardware in. He said some people never have problems and that others need to come in and have it removed. He indicated it really is individual by person and that there really isn't a certain time frame for when problems begin occuring. It might be that you are to the point you need to go back for a consult with your doctor.
