I've seen bones that were plated years earlier and you can hardly tell where the tips of the screws are sometimes.
Interesting.
BTW my time under the knife in the OR for the placement of the hardware - 45 minutes!

lucky bastard... I guess :) broke my left ankle 25 years ago and that thing hurts all the time. Broke my shoulder when I was in my early teens...took at least 10 years for it to stop aching all the time. the ribs and wrist (same wrist 2 times) dont hurt at all.

Zombie thread!

Just got back from the hand specialist and got good news while there, I STILL won't be in the "Heavy Metal Club"! 12/9/2012 got high-sided HARD off my 525 and got me a intra-articular distal radius fracture, 2 places. Doc says everything looks good to go. I be out of the cast before the end of January.

[QUOTE=SteelJM1;18039044 Doesn't feel good when tendons need to slide over them.[/QUOTE]

I just butchered up a white tailed deer on the weekend. I've done a dozen or so now and I can tell you that in the deboning process the flesh has to be cut off the bone. There is no sliding action of mucle along the bone/muscle interface. The mucsle has to be cut or tore off the bone so as bad as those protruding screws look, I imagine that they shouldn't interfere with tendons. I know that you're not a white tailed deer but we are super close in anatomy.

Not mine, but my wife's membership photo... she was a passenger in a work vehicle that rolled. Roof partially collapsed, impacting the top of her head resulting in a burst fracture of the T6.

Clearing airport security is all kinds of fun, nowadays...



And even more to her credit this was before she got her motorcycle license, and we've done several 2-week long 2500mile road trips on bikes since. She's a tough cookie, that one...

Yup. Got the plates on tib/fib. Only the screws sheared at the top of the tib plate. They took it out and put the nail down the middle + bone graft. All good now. Not then. And yes, bike mishap, too embarrassing to post in FP.

I don't know if you'll be able convince my buddy of this, the screws in his radius (a break like mine, but his was worse, no choice but screwing it) are bugging him quite a bit, says he's got tendonitis from them dragging on the screw heads.

When I started riding, I was already pretty well farkled:



My own weather station, courtesy of a logging accident in 2001. All five metatarsals and three cuneiform bones were broken at least once.

sheesh - 7 broken ribs and an a-c dislocation and I can't even register!

ATGATT rules - not a bruise or a scratch on my body from high-siding when a protective dog running with his jogger master tried to tyre-clamp my front wheel with his teeth.

My best wishes to the new breed of bionic weathermen, but given the choice, I'll try to stay out of this club as long as possible!
