The two photos below are of my left leg (femur). Photos below are of my left arm. These are the screws and rod in my upper arm. Broke my upper arm and femur when a young driver decided to ignore a stop sign. Surgery repaired both my humerous and femur approximately 18 months ago. I now would like to get the hardware removed. Any thoughts or experience regarding hardware removal? Please share your stories. I'm meeting with my surgeon in two weeks to discuss. I am thinking he will try to discourage removal, but I'd rather have them gone. I'm an active 47 year old and I can noticeably feel them and it's starting to bug me. Pros and Cons. Would you do it again? Thanks in advance, Dennis.
