I had a arthroscopic subtalar fusion with a ligament reconstruction May 6,2014.
I was having a lot of pain and it was discovered that I had a tarsal coalition and fracture along with a history of ankle sprains. Recovery is progressing. I saw the doctor yesterday and had cast and stitches removed. He said everything went well but I had a lot going on in my ankle. 3 foreign bodies floating around, a torn ligament and a lot of scar tissue.(surgery took almost an hour longer than expected) I now have no feeling on the bottom of my foot along the outside from my baby toe. My baby toe is also a bit numb. (nerve damage?) He seemed confused by this and didn't offer much explanation, exept that one of the tools may have pressed against the nerve and bruised it or it may be because he gave me a nerve block. Did anyone else have this? If so how long did it last?
I have an air cast on now but still NWB for another three weeks
