K-wires

Hi
I have had 3 toes fused with k-wires. At the end of the wires are metal discs that are later used for removal of the wires and also, I guess, to protect the end of the wires. Has anyone experienced these discs? My concern is that they have moved and are not in the position they were when put in place in surgery. One appears bent a bit. I have no pain as a result of this but am just curious to see if this is firstly normal and secondly to see if has happened to anyone else?
I had 4 toes fused earlier this year but they used different k wires then I think. I did have a problem with the removal of 2 of the wires so thats where my apprehension is coming from I guess!
Looking forward to any replies.
Thanks a lot in advance
