I've recently become the owner of a stainless steel screw in my fifth metatarsal due to a Jones Fracture
. Have you had hardware like this installed and subsequently removed?

My Podiatrist has mentioned this screw is easily removed after everything has fully healed. Just wondering if anyone here has done that before and if you had any complications or issues you wish you had addressed before the removal of said device?
(Answers to other questions: my x-ray looks exactly like this one, knee scooters are really handy devices, and the downside to light rail tracks in Portland is when you have to avoid getting hit by a car by pivoting around and getting your foot caught in a rail track that is flush with the road. Thanks for any advice you can offer.)
