Reaction to implanted hardware?
last Sept I had fallen and did a pilon fracture of my right ankle. They had to repair the tibia and fibula using plates and screws. The right side incision healed nicely but the left side has been red and now swollen (like egg) and is painful. I am having a patch test done next week to see if there is a allergy to metal.
