Re: Post Morton's Neuroma Surgery
A burning sensation is associated with sensory nerves. Often sensory nerves sustain trauma during surgical procedures which can result in complete numbness, burning sensations, pain with the slightest touch and even electrical tingling sensations. Usually that is the progression one goes through in the nerve's healing process. I And many others here have experienced this type of pain and gone through its various stages. I am not sure why your doctor could not have easily explain this to you or why he would be ANGRY that you called and asked such a question. It is part of their job to answer your questions and it is a valid question and concern to bring up to the doctor.
Since you are only a week post surgery it could take a bit longer before you start to notice the burning sensation starting to ease up, for me the burning took a couple of weeks for others it has taken just a few days. It is different for each person and it also depends on how much trauma the nerves have sustained. If you do not see some progression soon or if you are concerned that something else may be the cause of your pain then if I were you I would schedule an appointment to have it checked out. It is always better to be safe than sorry.
I wish you all the best in your recovery.
