Re: Bunionectomy screw removal?
I can see it sticking through but when I had the surgery I didn't notice any bumps or anything, and it sometimes throbs if I walk for longer than a couple minutes.
My surgeon has told me in the past that if the screw was bothersome and needed to come out, it'd be done with local anestetic.
I am, however, petrified of needles... so would I be able to be put under for hardware removal?
