Actually my surgeon was really good about communicating all of that, including the possibility of going in to remove it down the road if needed.
About 10 years ago I broke my foot. Lisfranc...it was nasty. I have 7 screws/pins, and a few fusion points where they scraped some bone from my leg to fill in some gaps. I was in a similar set up as your picture for a while. I can't drive manual still as I lose feeling from time to time due to extreme nerve damage (though I haven't tried in a few years).@chickenwire
I know what you are going through..

The only thing that was holding my foot onto my body was the skin and muscles/tendons. both sides of my angle shattered. I have some 18 screws 3 rods 2 plates, and my Tibia and Fibula are screwed together. the large gray hose you see is attached to a set of "pipes" that are wrapped around my leg. at the other end just outside of the photo is an igloo cooler that has been fitted with a battery and a pump. I had to fill the cooler with cold water and ice many times a day. I had to keep frosty cold water running through the bandages 24 hours a day for 2 weeks folllowing the surgery....
The thing taped to my thigh is a regulator for a Lidocaine drip. the "pump" for the Lidocaine was a tube that has a spring and a plunger in it to push the Lidocaine. I had a tube that went into the back of my thigh right into the sciatic nerve. had that thing for a week.
It took me 10 years before I was able to drive a standard transmission vehicle after that. I still can't run or jump.
I’m probably going to have to have my screws/pins taken out in the near future, and I didn’t want to have to go through the trouble of learning a new way...I’m fine with the auto (actually made finding one easier).@maddenry
The Solstice GXP I have now when I bought it i had not driven a manual in a long time because I had problems with the clutch. If you have the will and the want it will happen. it took about a year before the discomfort subsided and also to learn how to depress the clutch in a manner that didn't cause me discomfort. I also learned how to shift the car without using the clutch, in stop and go traffic I leave enough space between myself and the vehicle in front of me so I hardly ever have to come to a complete stop. on days when my leg and ankle are bothering me I do not drive the car..
