... Hi Emily,
I had hammertoe and had two toes fused. I wanted to let you know that you don't have to waist your energy on worrying about the pin removal. I was really worried about that also. The doctor pulled them out of my toes and all I could really feel was pressure. It didn't hurt at all. I was not given anything when he removed them. He also removed my stitches... (20 replies)

... I know you will have already been living with this for a while, but I thought I'd respond for the benefit of others. I had a single bunionectomy/osteotomy with a bone spur removal.

... Hi teddie and debbie!
Set backs are always difficult to deal with, particulary if you are imobile. I am going to see if I feel ready to walk FWB next week, as it is week six for me and I don't see the surgeon until week seven. If it hurts to walk FWB, then, I won't do it. It is true, everyone and each foot heals differently. My first op was much better, this time, things ... (240 replies)
