Re: Screw too long?
I am only 5 months post surgery, but I just had my screw removed on Thursday. My foot feels better already! It is of course tender where the incision was, but the pain on the bottom of my foot is gone. I asked to keep the screw after they removed it, and I must say I was surprised how long it was. It is probably close to an inch and a half long!
My total surgery time was 12 minutes, and I will be back to work on Tuesday. All in all, I feel like it was definitely worth it so far. If it is bothering you, I say just get it out.
