... Hi. I have a pin in two toes after hammertoe surgery (and bunion surgery with Weil osteotomy). I want to know if, when they take those pins out, will the toes go back to their natural curvature? Right now they are sticking straight out - which, when I had the sutures removed, they said was normal, "because the pins are in them". I get the pins removed on July 1st - will... (3 replies)
