Complications from orif hardware
« on: December 20, 2010, 05:35:34 AM »
Hi I had orif on my fractured patella about 2 and a half months ago. Everything has been good rom and pt is going great. Yesterday I started experiencing a pain that is horrible. It feels like a stabbing through my muscle above my knee almost as if something is going to poke through my skin with any movement. When I touch this spot there is something very sharp there. Could this be the wire and is this normal or a complication from the hardware? Os wanted to remove hardware in may but I think it may come sooner than that. Any help would be nice!
