En route Arizona during first 12 days following surgery in Waterloo, I noticed that 1 of 2 pins rotated between bandage changes. Since I had no problems or pain, I would not have returned to Dr. Torrez prior to his suggested "2 week checkup" whether I was in Waterloo, Arizona or on the moon! Weeks later 3 Phoenix hand surgeons consulted and said my distal fingertip bone was highly likely infected by that loose pin during the first few days after surgery, not by subsequent infections: Dr. Torrez's post op instructions said not to soak the finger or get it wet. A hard orange collar we thought was a plaster cast meant to hold the pins in place should have been removed on the first bandage change. On the 14th day I soaked it off my now swollen finger to find infected, unmentioned non-dissolving stitches.
