complications from morton's neuroma surgery and osteotomy

I had surgery to remove a large neuroma from the second interspace in april. After all the bandages were removed I noticed that my third toe was not straight and was moving ontop of my fourth toe. After a few weeks I had alot of trouble wearin a shoe. I went to the Dr. that preformed the surgery and he told me all that I needed was a ligament release and it would be fine. He did the releas in his office with only one stitch. He removed it in 3wks but still kept in taped to the other toes. I removed the tape a week later and that toe is limp. I have no control over it at all. When I walk it is loose and kinda flops. It is very uncomfortable. Now along with the numbness between the toes ( which I was aware would be the outcome) I now have a useless toe. I have three questions. 1. Is this the usual outcome of this surgery? 2. Was something done wrong? 2. Can something be done for my toe? I just want to know if I should see a different Dr.
