Re: Successful Hammertoe Surgery ??
I had hammertoe surgery at the same time as a bunionectomy. Mine were complicated by the fact that I dislocated them a month prior to surgery. I had my #2 and #3 toes straightened and pinned. The pins were in for 7 1/2 weeks, probably longer than you will need due to the dislocations.
Don't worry about the pins coming out, I was astonished at how easily they were removed, nothing to worry about whatsoever.
I am now 3 1/2 months post op and able to work out including running. The toe joints were fused so they act as a unit, but they are still flexible enough that I can walk up a steep hill... and that is the ultimate test.
There is less feeling in them than before so it feels a bit strange, but I think that will gradually change.
I had this surgery because I am very active and couldn't run with the dislocated toes, the fact that I am back to running now makes it all very worthwhile.
Good luck to you!
