Dr. David Earle answered

Specializes in General Surgery

Call your surgeon: There are too many situations possible to give an accurate assessment. What type of metal? Which part of leg? When was the original injury, and were there complications? What are your specific health issues? A simple call to your surgeon can answer your questions. Hope this helps! And good luck!
