toenail surgery and damaged nerve

I was operated on twice on each big toe-nail for ingrowing toenails abroad. Each toenail grew back in two separate pieces and had to be removed definitively using phenol during a stay back in the UK. More than a year after the operation, the toe on the right foot still feels sensitive as if the nerve had been damaged. Is this normal ? Is it likely to calm down over time ? And is there anything that can be done about it?

I would be most grateful for any help you can provide me on this matter.

With thanks,

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.
