I have (had) some of those too. I thought that may be the outcome. I additionally had 5 on the other side. 2 remain on the tib. I have a pic somewhere of the ex-fix that accompanied my trip. except, 1.5 months in the hopital, the internal fix, and the external fix and an open wound I had to do dressing changes for 3 months while it healed. and later a month stint because the extraction of the internal screws got infected. 11 screws, a plate, a pin, I think 15 surguries, exculding about 10 I&D (irrigation and debrement) during the infection cleaning stage. Glad to see you got it fixed, and that nothing worse happened during the trip.
