Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Plate and screw is a metal that is used to help treat patients with broken bones so that the stability of broken bones is better and helps to connect broken bones after fixation of open repositioning. Therefore, in patients who have broken bones, the installation of these plates is very useful for the stability of the broken bones during the recovery and healing of bones ranging from 6 weeks to 12 weeks.
During the recovery period doctors usually provide treatment in the form of calcium to help the healing process, and the orthopedic doctor can also provide advice for medical rehabilitation to help restore muscle and joint function after it is stated that the patient can exercise and recover function.
After the operation of the installation of the plate runs around 6-12, the doctor can plan the removal of the plate, and plan medical rehabilitation for the recovery of muscle, joint and bone function after the trauma period, so that after the plate is removed, patients can be more comfortable in carrying out daily activities.
In connection with your question, bone growth is at the ends of the bones which are precisely located on the growth plate. Thus, the installation of plates in broken bones patients does not affect the growth of your bones. So you can still use drugs that aim to help your height grow.
However, in certain cases of fractures, complications from trauma and broken bones can cause differences in bone length and this is an implication of damage to broken bone fragments and bone repositioning done. And despite complications of differences in bone length, growth in broken bones can still occur especially in young patients.
However, for more details, you can discuss with your orthopedic surgeon, so you get more detailed information relating to the recovery period and also related to your desire to take enhancing drugs.
To help height growth, after you are declared healed and allowed to do heavy activity by your doctor, then you can do physical exercise or exercise regularly to help height growth. In addition, eating nutritious foods will help support your goals.
Thus the info we can convey.
