Default Removal of plate and intramedullary srcew after ORIF 5th Metatarsal

I was wondering if anyone out there had ORIF surgery of 5th metatarsal and later, after it healed, had their plate and intramedullary screw removed. My metal is bothering me. I couldn't find anywhere on the internet where they did so with the 5th metatarsal. If so how long after ORIF surgery was it removed. Thanks for any answers

I just had mine removed one week ago. When I got the original surgery done, the surgeon had to use a washer along with the screw due to the size of the fragment. He told me that it might bother me, and he was right. It was a pretty quick procedure to remove it. It already feels much better. My original surgery was about six months ago.

I had an ORIF in 2001 for my 5th metatarsal fx with a plate and 6 screws. Tomorrow morning I am having the hardware removed due to constant foot pain during winter and changing months. This is a annoying pain that my Dr says will go away when the hardware is removed. Good luck to you !

I'm the person who started this thread. Finally in two weeks I'm going to have the plate and screws removed. Almost a year to the day from when I fractured my foot in July 2011. I will also have a tendon graft and an avulsion fracture of my lateral process of the talus repaired. The later two things I only recently found I had injured.

The only advice I can give someone and know that I am 100 percent correct about is that if a person is unfortunate enough to have an injury to your ankles or feet, that justifies seeing a doctor, they should make an appointment to see a highly qualified and highly recommended DOCTOR OF PODIATRY... ASAP. If I had done that one thing within a week of my injury it would have made all the difference. Not a Family Doctor and not an Orthopedic Doctor either.

I bet 99 out of 100 orthopedic doctors, if they had an injury to their ankles or feet, would go to a Podiatrist. That it....I'm done!

Heal Fast!

I have 4th and 5th metatarsal screws and rods. I was told I would have to wait 12 months after surgery before having them removed.
