Feeling of needles sticking in the bottom of my feet after surgery! Is this normal??

I had foot surgery a week and a half ago. I stepped on a piece of glass with my heel and they had to go in and get the glass out. The surgery went well and they got all the glass out. I dont have much swelling in my foot and I can move my toes and I can feel all parts of my foot BUT when I press on the bottom of my foot hard or put my toes on the floor, I have a feeling of like needles sticking in the bottom of my foot/ burning sensation. Does anyone know if this is normal?

depending on how big the incision is, they may have just cut through some of the surface nerves (normal) and they may be starting to heal. or maybe the incision was over a nerve and it got nicked. burning is nerve pain usually.
