Title: Pins and wire
Post by: Dana329 on October 07, 2011, 05:27:42 PM
Hi all, new here, I was in a car accident way back in '90-'91...all went well (20 years) up until about 6 weeks ago when it just didn't feel right and I noticed a small bruise on the inside of the right knee cap. Went to Mass General and had xrays done, well looks like the wire broke, into 3 pieces. Now I have to see a trauma surgeon. The doctor had never seen anything like it, has anyone here heard of the wire breaking?

I'm in the process of getting copies of the xrays so I can share :)

Hope it's nothing too serious to fix! Do you think that some activity may have caused the wire to break?

Thanks, I asked the doctor how it could have happened and he replied "I don't know" and said I need to see a trauma surgeon...yay me
