I keep about 6 on hand for just this purpose.
He said they were rusted so bad they had lost their shape...I doubt he was gonna re-use them.

Nuts lost shape. Not the stud, is how I understood it, assuming from the title he has studs.

I agree, cut off both the nut AND stud and replace them all if you heat them up.
