... Hi - maybe it depends where in your foot they are. I had one external pin that was through the top of my foot that was removed at 6 weeks but I have one "permanent" screw that is in the first metatasul at the joint closest to my ankle that he said would stay in unless it bothered me. I'm only at 5 1/2 months now and it doesn't bother me. Sometimes I can feel the head of it... (1 replies)
... In all honesty, I was like you, scared and nervous because there was a 3" pin sticking out of the top of my foot. I had a hard time believing everyone else who had the same bunion surgery that removing the pin was no problem at all. ... (9 replies)

... provement in the structure of my foot. He said it looked great! He did shave a bit of the bone but also did a chevron procedure and realigned my foot. I had a pin in but that got infected and was taken out early. I still have pain when I walk on my foot like I should. ... (5 replies)

... y foot was wrapped up, I was too scared to look at it or do anything that would cause more pain, so I did not mind that I had to keep it covered up! I also had a pin sticking out of the top of my foot for 4 weeks. I can't believe it was in there for so long, but I seemed to get through it. ... (15 replies)
... break anything, just had to keep it iced and elevated. I had a pin in the top of my foot up until two days ago, and they removed that. Surprisingly, it was a piece of cake to have it removed. ... (7 replies)
... I have to go look it up to get the right terminology so here goes. I had a moderate bunion removed with a pin inserted into the bone and a little tailor's bunion also removed with a pin too. ... (4 replies)
... I had bunion surgery on Oct 18th and had one external pin sticking out through the top of my foot. It was removed at 6 weeks and honestly I didn't feel anything and it also had to be about 3" long. ... (9 replies)
... still "planted" on the couch with my foot elevated. I was also in a "half" cast that went up the back of my leg to just below my knee. I also had one external pin that came out of the top of my foot and that was removed at 6 weeks. ... (5 replies)

... I would think if it was an infection it might feel hot to the touch and/or be oozing and look really red. However a call to your doctor is probably in order. Good luck. (3 replies)

... Do you have a fever or any discharge at that sight? It may or may not be infection. (He will do what is best for your foot) I would call your doctor and see what he suggests. Hope this helps! (3 replies)
... The first 6 weeks I wasn't able to get my foot wet or remove the doctor's dressing since I had one external pin so I did nothing. I'm going to ask tomorrow what I can put on it but it actually looks good. ... (5 replies)
... and fuse the joint. By doing that to realign the bones he actually shaved very little from the bunion itself. Of course I have a pin in the joint and I've been nonweight bearing for 6 weeks and have 2 more weeks to go, but he assures me in the long run it will be a better outcome. ... (5 replies)
... mmarino - I guess you can't get your foot wet because of the external pin. I was able to get my foot wet the 3rd week post op. I couldn't put my foot down in the shower though because it hurt too much, but the warm water felt good on the foot. I bought a shower chair and that was a life-saver. It's tough getting the gauze bandages and the ace bandage back on the foot... (10 replies)
... Oh emh - I'm sorry to hear that you are in so much pain. I had a severe bunion on my right foot that was operated on Oct 18th so I'm about 3 1/2 weeks post op. I was also given Percoset (Oxycodone) and I can't really say I was in a lot of pain.
