Hi! I had a fusion on my big toe in October. At 6 weeks, there was no sign of fusion yet. I just went back to the doctor recently and found out I have broken my hardware. I have a CT scan scheduled to see if there's any bone growth now. I guess things that could happen, depending on if there's enough fusion, are:

1. I may have another surgery to remove the hardware.
2. I may have to start all over again with another fusion surgery.

My questions are: Has anyone been through hardware removal? What's the recovery like? Did you have success afterwards? Has anyone had a repeated fusion surgery? Did you have a good outcome? Are my odds worse second time around? Does scar tissue become a problem? And lastly, are there other options you've tried in this situation? Thanks!
