    I dont know the number but if you read through some of the old post here you will see alot! I had my big toe fused last year and am in the process of getting my surgery set up for screw removal............they stick out and bother me all the time, I cant deal with it anymore! I was hoping they wouldnt bother me but thats not the case! good luck to you!
