Re: austin bunionectomy - x-rays show broken/too long screw

#1. Have you considered going back to the doctor who did your surgery?

#2. Since I can't see the x-rays or your foot, I can't really give an opinion.

#3. Taking the screw out is not usually a serious thing. Once the bone has healed, the hardware does not give any additional strength. When the screw is removed, the hole in the bone takes some time before it fills in again.

The Silipos® Soft Sock™ is a two-layer sock carefully designed with a proprietary gel pad molded in between the two fabric layers at the sole to absorb and reduce friction, abrasion, shear forces, and moisture away from the foot. It is recommended for the diabetic, rheumatoid or insensitive foot.
