Re: Screw removal

Your doctor should really answer these questions. There are certainly holes left when the screws are removed. The use of bone putty certainly sounds like a good idea and I have used it before, but not to fill in these holes. It take several months for the holes to fill in completely.

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.
