Silastic implant - 1st MTP joint

I had a silastic implant in my 1st MTP joint just over 2 weeks ago and visited the hospital again yesterday to have the dressings removed and sutures trimmed. The Consultant seemed happy with my progress but I am concerned as I have a numbness/pins and needles senseation the whole length of my toe and around the wound area. Is this normal and will things rectify themselves in time or should I have cause for concern? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

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.
