    Jolly if it's any help I had two pins removed last week and did not feel a thing! I admit I did not look as I am a bit of a coward. Any way hope this helps. Pain in my toes come and goes also.

    Hi jilly

    Yes my little toes were the most painful of all my toes I think it's because the pin entry points are so close to the nail bed.... pop some padding it's the surgical shoe to keep the pressure off them.

    Also I wanted to reassure you that the pin removal does not hurt at all...I had 6 pins out two weeks ago and as I breathed in the nurse pulled them... The cleaning stuff they cleaned my pin wounds did sting though.
