surgery on foot
i posted on here last week about a clean break it turned out i did not have a clean break afterall but a displaced fibula so i had surgery last thursday which was very painful that evening.
i am since then just been resting alot and can feel the metal/screws at times around the ankle. they gave me a fibercast and i return next week to get a new cast put on and i think to have my stitches removed even though on my paper work it says no stitches? but surely there must be some sort of stitches.i wanted to ask how likely could it be that screws get loose mine feel fine but i wanted to know if they were loose would i be in alot of pain? i am still getting some pain and uncomfy/ stiffness but i noticed it has become less and less as days have gone by, my swelling has gone down too but around the ankle itself it still looks alittle swollen. can anyone advise me on this and about the stitches?
