i just had my (temporary) screw removed a few days ago...although i was very scared/nervous, it wasn't bad at all...the only part that hurt was when he gave me the shot to numb the area...then it only took like 15 min max. i did get stitches so i have to go back to get those removed in about 2 weeks. but after the screw came out, i think my foot feels a bit better....a little less stiffness and the scar area is lying flatter (i guess the screw head was making a bump in the skin). my pod also told me that removing the screw would help with pain/stiffness/etc. but he also had told me that he planned to remove the screw even before the actual bunionectomy so i'm not sure about your case... hope this helps
