Question surgery to remove ankle pins - yes/no???

I am 10 months post double cancaleus fracture and left ankle surgery with 4 pins. My PT man says that the pins "severly restrict flexibility" and that I really can't progress any more. He suggests surgery to remove the pins. I'd appreciate any responses. This messae bord has been so helpful to me. Thanks!
