morton's neuroma surgery

I had surgery for a Morton's neuroma in my right foot about 19 days ago. The recovery was difficult at first, but I am finally back at work. The problem is that my foot is feeling much better, but if I put my full weight on it, I feel an electrical shock sensation in the ball of my foot. I'm worried that the surgery either didn't help, or created a new problem. My doctor doesn't want to hear about any problems; from his standpoint, the surgery went fine and was completely routine. Will this sensation go away, do I need more surgery, or am I just doomed to a life of pain? I still have a neuroma in my left foot, and I don't whether or not to proceed with the surgery, as long as this problem persists.
