but mostly there's been x-rays by this time to demonstrate the bones have come together. If the bones are solid, accidents can still break them back apart but short of more trauma, if they are healing, then low stresses are not bad.
I cannot say in your particular case, but generally by 6 wk, some healing on x-ray. ...Read more

I have FD of left femur (head and neck) approx 1 X 3 inches. 2 pins and bone graft w/ surgery in 2002. Should I have restrictions on lifting?

Always seek a second opinion, especially in a situation like this, from a tertiary care center wrist specialist for help. ...Read more

Sorry you're going through all that. Especially since one of the advantages of the screw should be earlier return to function.
If everyone agrees that the screw is protruding then you need to be cautious about leaving it as is because it may cause damage to the cartilage of the joint. Cartilage damage is hard to undo.
"let it heal for 3 more months" makes little sense as it is already 4 months after the surgery so the bone should be healed, especially with graft.
Good luck! ...Read more
