xray after 5 months for fracture of leg

My mom had a fracture on her left leg. It was compound fracture with her leg broken above her ankle She had a steel rod put in her leg from the joint till the ankle. Got an xray done just of her left leg AP & Lateral view. The report is normal except for the 2 points mentioned as below:

1) Fixating devices are seen in situ.
2) Old fracture of distal tibia and fibula are noted.

Not able to understand the above points and need to know if they are normal or is it cause of worry. Please help.

Those are comments that would be considered "normal" for such a series of x-rays. Usually there are more comments. If there is pain or discomfort, consult your orthopedist.
