Areas of foot numb after screw removal

Hello -

I experienced a fracture dislocation of the right ankle in march and last friday had the syndesmotic screw removed. While in recovery I noticed areas of my toes, foot, and ankle were numb - becoming tingly when I put any kind of pressure on the incision. Prior to surgery I didn't have this problem. What do you think caused this problem and how long would it last based on your experience
