I have a metal plate in my leg and screws because I broke my ankle late last year. I have been off crutches and released from the doctor for about 3 months now and I haven t had any problems in that time. Lately (in the last couple days) the area where my metal plate is had been hurting and it starting to swell . It hurts to walk on and touch but it isn t unbearable. What is causing this and will it go away?
