The surgery yesterday was to remove the hardware.

Did you get the surgery the same day as your injury?
Up in Canada I just had an arthrogram and have to wait 4 weeks before my surgeon comes back from vacation to actually give me the results... who knows how long it'll take after that to schedule the surgery.
+1 for private healthcare.

So I got to board 10 days in the past few weeks. I got my screws taken out yesterday. I just had it done with some skin numbing local.. It was kinda weird to feel the screws coming out of my bones and hearing it vibrate through my body into my ears...... I wanted to work that evening though and not miss out on pay or use up vacation time.
My wife and I on a day last week.
The screws on xray across my fibula and tibia
I snapped the pictured from my perspective, you can see the screwdriver going to my ankle and the first screw is coming out. the second one is the second screw coming out. I work here with these people, otherwise I could probably not do this with no sedation or snap pics.....
I posted them on facebook while doing surgery.. No privacy violations here since I was the patient and taking the pics of myself.
