Bone growing over screw site
« on: February 05, 2008, 10:25:56 AM »
Hi all,
this isnt causing any pain, just wondering if its 'normal'. The area above my screw site has had bone growing over it for years now, lately its started to look like a bump sticking out - it doesnt hurt at all, but Im kinda wondering if it will keep developing bone - am I going to end up with a third leg growing out of my leg!!!!

any thoughts?
