Re: 5th metatarsal Jone's fracture K-wire removal

The wires will not calcify. Metal is inert in the body. The impression I get is that you believe the wire is causing you discomfort. While I can't see your X rays, your doctor has and would be the best judge.
You may still have discomfort from a prolonged period of immobilization. It is hard enough for anyone to get back into the swing of things after this injury, let alone the type of job you are doing.

You need clarification from your doctor.
