Hi, thanks for writing to HCM. As your fracture
has been fixed with "only screws" (without any plate) , it indicates that the fracture is a simple one. Generally, screws should be removed within 6 months to one year post operatively.
Serous discharge from the wound site after 10 years of surgery is very unlikely. Probably, it could be due to mild infection or a simple metal reaction. In any case, the implants have to be removed. If the discharge is still coming even after screw removal, you need thorough evaluation. Hope this helps
