    In February of 2011 I had surgery on a tibea plataeu fracture. The plate was beginning to push my skin upwards and was getting very painful at the bottom towards my shin after 8 months.

    Therefore, I requested the hardware to be removed. The OS agreed and the next evening I fell and tore all the stiches from the knew and approximately 5 inches above. The OS decided to butterfly the incision instead of going back into the OR to fix it. There has been alot of draining and it has begun swelling in my knew towards the inside. I go to see him tomorrow (1 week after surgery) for a status. Can anyone recommend questions to ask? At the time he applied the butterflies he also had xrays done to make sure no bones were affected and they came back fine. I took all of my antibiotics and while icing it down on the fourth day, the icepack broke and all of the incisions were wet for probably 20 minutes. I immediately dried it and reapplied guaze. Any words of advice?

    That sounds painful! Gosh, there’s no surgeon or doctor here who can intelligently answer from experience. Try posting on Yahoo Answers and see if anyone there knows.
