Inquiring plate removal on left arm due to fracture

Postby Alfiz » Wed, 26 Jun 2013 12:34 am

Hi, i broke my left humerus bone in clean half about a 2 months ago in badminton(sad case).
So a month ago, i went for surgery and doctor placed a metal plate with 10 screws
into my bone covering 1/2 of my upper left arm. Surgery is good, no radial injury, ongoing PT.
But to me, i find it uncomfortable having a metal plate on my arm and is slightly heavy to me.

I need advice if i need to remove the metal plates, what are the risks of doing it ? Those who removed it before, please do share.
Thanks.
