for the doctor! .. nerve irritation after surgery

I had surgery to remove Morton's Neuroma between 3 and 4th toe. First week after surgery I could not put any weight at all on foot as the nerve pain was AWFUL. Dr. gave me a rocker boot which enabled me to walk a bit. After the second week walking in the boot was OK. Wore the boot for a 3rd week before switching to a Merril Clog shoe which is the only shoe that is comfortable. I still have quite a bit of nerve sensitivity in that when I apply any pressure at all to the middle of the foot on the bottom it sends a sticking feeling right through to the 4th toe bypassing any feeling in the area which is still numb between the toes and just slightly beneat the 2 toes. Also, when I lightly rub the top of my foot anywhere from the middle of the foot on toward the toes, I have nerve sensitivity and tingling. Are these tingles and sticking sensations typical? And if not are they likely to remain or eventually go away? I still cannot walk barefoot as the pressure on the area beneath the 3/4th toes also creates the sticking problem. Please let me know your thoughts and thank you!

The Shin Splint Compression Wrap applies gentle pressure on soft tissue next to the tibia (shin bone), helping prevent additional tearing of the soft tissue away from the tibia. Compression not only reduces additional damage, it alleviates pain and enhances the healing process.
