Hi @Pumpkin I've only just found this thread but I well remember the pain of foot surgery (Scarf osteotomy) and cannot imagine suffering foot pain for over 2 years. I chose to have all the metalwork removed after ankle fracture repair but that was due to irritation, not real pain. Hopefully the surgery for screw removal will go ahead as planned this time.
Tomorrow is the day for my screw removal. Feeling better after talking to the nurse at the surgery center, she has pulled my recent labs, and cardiology notes.
I don't expect complete relief, but hope it is enough so my foot can finally heal.
@Pumpkin I am so glad to hear you are home and doing well! I did get a giggle though at surgeon having to find the right screwdriver. Who'd have ever thought that would be a challenge for a surgeon? Josephine was so right when she said orthopedic surgery was about 1/2 surgery and 1/2 carpentry.
