Neuroma Surgery Problems?

On February 4th this year I had surgery on my right foot. My problem was diagnosed as Mortonís Neuroma. The doctor could not determine exactly where the problem existed and I was no help. The pain was in the central area and the burning was so bad I could not tell if it was coming from the right of my middle toe or to the left. The doctor and I both agreed that as long as we were doing the surgery, he would make an incision in both areas and remove anything looking suspicious. He removed what he called some tissue on the right side of the middle and the neuroma was removed from the left side. Since the surgery I have had swelling and pain. The middle toe is now pointing to the left and it is under the second toe which is also pointing towards the big toe. Is it normal to have this swelling four months after surgery? What can possibly be causing the middle and the second toe to angle towards the big toe? Will the toes go back in place once the swelling goes down? How do I get rid of the swelling and pain? Any help will be greatly appreciated.
