I had a right ankle triple fusion last September with five bolts being inserted. I have found that every time I have a bath that ankle really swells up and hurts. It didn't do it before the operation. I wondered whether the heat from the water was heating the metal bolts and so causing the inflammation. My left ankle is not affected so much. It seems a bit far fetched but I can't think of any other reason. I have had RA and Type 1 Diabetes for 25 years plus.
Does anybody else have metal bits in their body which causes a similar effect?
