What casues pain in ankles after ORIF surgery?
Yes. Can be due to allergy.
Thanks for posting your query.
The bone disintegrating from around the screws can happen due to allergy caused by the surgical steel. The pain that you have can be related to post traumatic stiffness. It is best to get the screws removed if radiologically the bones show formation of callus. This will prevent further bone disintegration.
In addition to the pain killers and physiotherapy you can do a hot fomentation also for a better relief. Adding calcium supplements to your daily routine and a calcium rich diet will also help.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.

Implant needs removal.
Thanks for writing again.
I have seen the X-ray attached.
The bones show significant disintegration at the site of implant. Allergy to nickel can cause such problem. It is best to get the implant removed. There is no need to get the implant replaced. It is best to take a rest of 2-3 weeks after the implant removal. Waiting for 5 weeks is not advisable.
Hope my answer is helpful.
