Numbness and tingling

Posted by Diana B on 10/04/00 at 06:54 (029746)

I don't know if this is t he right place to post this but here goes. I've had the open release 9/19 and I'm in a walking boot and a night splint. My problem is that I get numbness and tingling mainly in my toes when I elevate my foot which is most of the time. I'm non weight bearing and start pt today. Anyone with this same problem or know if it will go away any time soon? Thanks so much.

The sensations are not unusual and hopfully will go away as you heal.
