My daughter broke her upper arm just above the elbow and had surgery to reset the bone and pins inserted to hold them in place. My question is about the removal of the wires in 3 weeks. They commonly do them in above 5's in the Outpatients Department. They can also do them under a general. I am concerned about pain levels and just how traumatic this may be for her? Does anyone have any experience with these types of pin removals in children and some much needed advice?!
