I had Bunion surgery three months ago. The surgeon inserted an Titanium implant into my big toe to straighten it. Now after three months my foot swelled up and I suffered much pain in the big toe. X-rays showed the implant had come apart. Doctor says I need another surgery to take defective one out and insert another one into the big toe! IS it safe for me to wait another month to have the surgery with the broken implant inside my big toe?
