Hi, Im Bernadine, and I had a bunion removed from my left foot in March this year. Somehow my pinky toe is still sometimes swolen and bruised. My grandmother is a qualified nurse at the hospital and she says that the doctor inserted screws and plates into my foot.

According to her the doctor is supossed to remove it as it is not suppossed to stay in my foot.

Can you give me some clarity on this matter? What should I do about this matter? Must the screws and plate stay inside or must they be removed?

I can't carry on living with the pain, it's unbearable.

I need some advise please.

Regards

Bernadine %-)
