Asked on Metafilter:
Should I have the rod and screws removed now that my leg is healed?
Here's the problem-- If I keep my foot down (like sitting at my desk) for more
than about 20 minutes the blood starts to pool in my foot. Nasty. ...... So,
hive mind, especially those with medical knowledge and/or prior experience
with broken legs, help! Keep my foot from being swollen and numb!
