Re: how long does the big toe stay numb after osteootomy?
I'm 5 months post op. My scar and the side of my toe were numb for what seemed a long time. I think, if I remember, right at about 3 months was when I noticed that hey! it isn't numb anymore. That numbness just seems so disconcerting some how, doesn't it?? I think that freaked me out more than anything. I guess you think that something is wrong, but actually it is good cause whatever they put in there to numb it gives you the ability to not have any pain there....I'm for that!!
As it is right now, the very top area of my scar is still numb....a very small area, but still numb.
