Re: 3 months post Plantar Fasciotomy Surgery and toe is numb
Hmmm... I had numbness in the lateral side of my foot after plantar fasciotomy, and it turned out that the lateral plantar nerve had been severed when the PF was cut. While I don''t think this is the case with you (the nerve that innervates the big toe is in a different place than the LPN), keep following up with your doc and press for answers. It could be some swelling, so ask for some PT. If it still doesn't get better, get a nerve study, EMG, done. My DPM (who was horrible) brushed the problem off as the "tourniquet problem", and as it turns out, it really was a severed nerve.
