It could just be tender from the surgery or possibly nerve damage. I had flat foot reconstruction surgery 8/2010 and did have nerve damage. My doctor had said that it can happen and many times it is temporary. I was given a script for Lyrica and took it for a few months and then weaned off of it. The pain was no longer there and I have not had a problem since. Make sure you talk to you doctor about it.
