double neuroma surgery complications

I had double neuroma surgery between the 2nd and 3rd and 3rd and 4th toes on 12/9/05. The Doctor accomplished this with incisions on both sides of my middle toe. I was required to make office visits twice a week to monitor the healing and there was a mention of circulation is low, a possible island created on the top of my foot, and who knows what else. On 1/2/06 the Doctor removed the stitches and told me to walk on the foot more when I left. That same day the incisions split open and two days later they were removing dead tissue in between the incisions. I since have a deap spot on my foot with the middle toe tendon and ligaments exposed aproximately 1 1/4 x 1 1/4 inches wide and 1.2 CM deep at the deepest point "very painful". I was refered to a wound center 1/18/06 that has started hyperbaric oxygen treatments and the healing process looks like it will take months including skin grafts after my flesh granulates and forms back. I am not a diabetic and I feel like I have fallen into a black hole. No one seems to care how this happended and the surgeon seems to be ignoring me. The wound center is only one concerned with getting it fixed and I am sure me and my insurance company are paying big bucks for the treatment. I am off work on crutches worried about infection going to the Doctor for a minimum of 3 hours a day 5 days a week for a at least a month. Travelling 120 miles a day. It will probably be 3 months or more according to the nurse. I and am all together frustrated and scared. Can anyone tell me of another case where this has happened or is this the first time. Any help would be appreciated and I can supply more details and pictures "to be kept private" if it would help. What went wrong any ideas?? Can I have my foot back please?

This slip-on device is a soft and stretchable Nylon/Lycra® fabric molded with a proprietary gel pad to protect the entire Achilles tendon of the foot by absorbing pressure and friction resulted from rubbing with the surface of the shoe.
