Talus surgery: If the screw was inserted to correct a fracture, it is possible that there may have been joint damage in the sub-talar joint or the ankle joint. If you are not in pain, there is no need to worry as long as the fracture has healed. If you are in pain, i would have a follow up MRI to examine the joint surfaces.
