    Pins being taken out next Tuesday

    Hi. I am new to this. This is my first posting. I don't even know if I am doing this right. I am having pins removed from my toes a week from today. I am really anxious about this. Is there anyone out there who has had this done? Did it hurt? And more important, what does it feel like after they are out? Will I be wearing shoes right away? Does your foot hurt after?

    Hi! I've had it done twice before.. tailor bunionectomy right foot in 1994 and the same on the left foot in 1996. I currently just had an austin bunionectomy on my left foot not yet 2 weeks ago, but they put screws in this time. I remember being really nervous about getting them out! It's more of a discomfort versus real pain when they pull them because they have to hold your foot in such a way that they press on the sensitive areas, but the pin itself does not cause any pain coming out. Once it is out, there is no added pain. It doesn't really feel any different afterwards other than the fact that you don't have to wear any more bandages and you can walk on your foot. I wore sandals for awhile afterwards because your foot can sometimes still swell and I found it uncomfortable to wear sneakers right away.
