    Screw and plate not removed after 6 yrs from surgery, can we remove now?

    My crural leg main bone was broken in 2011 (age 19) and the doctor kept one plate with 2 screw to set the bone perfectly, but still (age 25) I haven't removed it out. I don't have any pain or irritation. Please advise, is there possible to remove this plate now? It should be removed? Some of my friends telling it is dangerous in older age.

    That's a question you should ask your doctor, not a bunch of strangers on the Internet.
