Brief Answer:
Broken plate can cause knee and hip hurt.

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for your query

I'm Dr Sudhir Kumar

I have gone through your query and understand your concern. Plate broken means the bone was note completely united ( it may be in process of union but not solid union). It may require repeat surgery. However I can serve you better if you upload x Rays. Broken plate can lead to pain in hip and knee. You can take analgesic such as ibuprofen for pain relief. Minimum movement of limb are advisable. You can discuss with your doctor about it.

Hope your query get answered. If you have any clarification then I will be happy to help you.

Wishing you a good health.
Take care.

I have just been prescribed Zydol 50mg (twice daily) to take for pain relief from leg ulcers. I am currently taking 6 x 30/500mg Co-codamol per day (once in the morning, lunch time and evening) and 3 x 400mg Ibuprofen if required during the day. I am not sure when to take the Zydol. Do I take it before co-codamol?
