What always bugs me, is they leave the heads and tips of the screws sticking out of the bone...it's not like there's nothing there for them to catch on! The screw closest to my wrist, in my radius bone, stuck out too far. The tendon that controls my index finger dragged over the tip of it for 8 years, clicking, grinding and burning with pain. They recently removed the screw and sewed up the damaged tendon, and it's been fine ever since!

If I left a screw sticking out, or a sharp weld unground, and someone hurt themselves...I'd be libel...and ashamed of my work!
