Pelvis hardware pain

Mar 29, 2017 7:43 PM

2.5 years ago my pubic symphis and rami bones were fractured in an accident. I had a plate and 8 screws put in to hold it all together. Well now when I sit down I can feel the 2 pins in my sit bones. It's very uncomfortable. I had my X-ray reviewed by an independent dr as directed by the insurance company and that dr has written a report saying that the pins need to come out. I have been waiting for my own dr to write a referral to a surgeon. In the meantime I feel like I'm sitting on nails. It is not something I can discuss with friends etc as they are grossed out by the fact I have a metal Minnie that needs tinkering. Starting to feel a bit depressed 😩
