Yay! It actually wasn't a surprise - I've been waiting almost five years to have this crap taken out. I'd post some scans of my x-rays from the original surgery but it seems that the ones showing the installed hardware got lost at my doctor's office. Hopefully I'll get them back when I go for my follow-up appointment in a couple of weeks. Needless to say, they're awesome. Once my painkillers kick in a little more I'll go scrounge up the pictures of the break.
