screws in foot callapse

Hi, I had surgery 1 year ago for hammertoes. A few months after surgery, I kept feeling pain in the ball of my foot. Two toes were repaired and I had stainless steel screws in my foot. The fourth toe next began to curl, I developed a bunion and was having major pain. 2 weeks ago I had a second surgery to remove the screws, redo the original surgery, correct the toe that was curling and correct the bunion. Surgery took over 4 hours because the original screws had callapsed through the bone in foot and those holes had to be repaired. 1 week after surgery, I developed a rash, swelling and redness. Now I find out that the stainless steel screws contain nickel and I have a nickel sensitivity. The Dr said that perhaps that is the reason the screws callasped through the bone from the original surgery. He said that in 6 more weeks, we need to remove the new screws in my big toe from the bunion repair. Has anyone experienced screws callasping through a bone or removing the screws after a few weeks. Also, has anyone had problems with stainless steel screws?
