What's that thing below the top 6 screws - a UFO?

Damn good question - damn the dogs are wide awake. It has had me wondering too - on my list of questions for the doctor. On the x-ray it isn't any clearer - looks like a metal shard / pin. X-Ray from the side doesnt help either but confirms that it is in the bone.
Just another roofing screw... :lol8:
I asked my ortho if mine needed to be removed.

Thanks to everyone for the support, offers to help, transport, (toolkits) and all the well wishes!!!

I'm with you Rob - I did not plan to have it removed - or at least not for some time - but there is just to much metalwork in and around the knee joint - catching on tendons and othr moving soft tissue and it is preventing me from getting back to full strength - which means that I can't ride comfortably off-road (major decision making factor).

If it was just on a straight bone or was not bothering me, I would leave it in too, but I need to get rid of the pain and wierd feelings in my knees (which are often there, even when not reading the buttism thread) - so time to unscrew myself.

Understood, I am lucky that my meccano is not interfering... I just have a weird cold feeling some cold days... :imaposer:
Hope the recovery is speedy and that it is not too painful. :thumleft:

My Meccano is out of my leg! About time!  All well, but leaning heavily on some serious drugs!

Oh, and that UFO is a drill bit that broke off in the bone with the first op.

Thanks. Home today and in good spirits. Can walk, bear weight or use crutches, but will need to use my brace locked for the first 3 - 4 weeks as the doc had to tighten up a ligament. Still, wont be long before I a properly back on my hind legs.
