I'm 31 days post op. Bunion removal & pipj fusion of second toe, pin in second toe is a little loose & moves up/down turns sideways. Is this normal?
Not abnormal: It is not unusual for the pin, which is usually a "K-wire" to feel slightly loose. The "K-wire" is usually smooth and not threaded like a screw (though there are threaded K wires).

Your surgeon has the ability to evaluate your foot and the X-rays. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
