Painful pin removal
I went to the doctor today for a 3-week checkup after a Austin Bunionectomy. He was supposed to remove the two pins in my foot, but he had a lot of difficulty getting the first one out, and it hurt so much I almost passed out. I am going back tomorrow to have the second one removed (am not looking forward to it), and wondered if anyone has ever had this experience. I thought they came out pretty easily after 3 weeks -- could it be too soon?
