possible reaction to screw or screws

Is it possible to develop a late reaction to the screw implants in an Austin Bunionectomy, months after the surgery and if so, is it possible for that reaction to take the form of infected lesions?

Also, will the toes still experience a numbness up to 6 months after such surgery?
