How much pain were you in? Does it aggravate the screws a little bit when it rains, snows, or is cold outside? I'm anxious I go to schedule my surgery Wednesday and my best friend is going with me. The OS I had before who had done my first surgery had to refer me to my new OS because he doesn't do the surgery (don't know why) but, I've only met him once and now I'm scheduling surgery with him which is kind of nerve-racking. :/ I've heard you should ice it no more than 3 times a day, is that true?
