Re: POD#4 s/p ORIF 5th Metatarsal

Thank you so much for your response. I am a little disappointed myself that he didnt take the time to explain the hardware to me, especially being in the healthcare field. I'm not sure if is a K-wire I know after doing a dressing change it runs from my heel and up through my entire metatarsal as it was a mid-shaft fracture. It does have a hook at the end of it and on the fluoroscan does not appear to be screw at all. If you could confirm that this sounds like a K-wire that would be great. This has definitely helped on easing my thoughts on the removal of this. Thank you so much.

The Shin Splint Compression Wrap applies gentle pressure on soft tissue next to the tibia (shin bone), helping prevent additional tearing of the soft tissue away from the tibia. Compression not only reduces additional damage, it alleviates pain and enhances the healing process.
