I had an austin bunionectomy and now have a k wire sticking out of my foot to hold the bone in position. My doctor said I could walk on it with a boot (CAM Walker).

I walked on it for the first time today and something is pinching me. I hope it is not the k wire or anything. It is not painful or anything, just a little pinching sensation every once and a while.

Does anyone know if the kwire could bend or break while walking on it? I am assuming that using the boot will protect the foot and wire, but I just want to make sure.
