Post Op numbness

Is numbness normal after surgery? My big toe is still a little numb.

Re: Post Op numbness

According to my surgeon, yes, it's normal. When was your surgery? Mine was on 8/24 and my big toe is still numb. Like if I touch it with a q-tip or a pen or something, I can't feel it. It's weird, but part of the surgery.

Feel better soon!

Re: Post Op numbness

I think I read on another thread that you had a nerve block too? That takes a few days to wear off as well. Give it time, and feeling will come back.

Re: Post Op numbness

I had surgery April 20th and still have numbness in two of my toes. I did not have a nerve block. The doctor said it is nerve damage from the cutting and moving stuff around in there. Right after surgery for the first month or so I could not stand to have anything touch those toes. Just felt like they were on fire. I wish you the best for a speedy recovery!! If you have any questions at all about things feel free to post. I had an extensive procedure and am now back at square one due to my fusion being busted in physical therapy.

Yeh I had nerve block. Got my cast today, my foot is still a little swollen still. I'll be in my cast until oct 19. I hope I recover fast bc I'm sick of being laid up.

Re: Post Op numbness

Hang in there Loki! It sucks big time but will be worth it in time! Are you icing your cast? I have experienced a lot of different things since my surgery. Kimberly.
