I am considering having surgery to remove the plate and six screws placed in my left leg 2+ years ago after a fall causing a compression fracture. The surgeon says this is pretty straight forward since the plate is just below the skin (not under muscle), and I should be on crutches for only six weeks. I am experienicing pain, especially during the cold, damp spells. My questions to anyone who has had the surgery - do you feel the surgery was worth going through? Did you expiernce relief from pain after the surgery? Is there any question(s) I should be asking the surgeon prior to the surgery? Thanks!
