k i am extremely happy having had the surgery i do however have one question. when i am laying down and am on my right side or when my foot has all it's weight on the lateral side i still have pain along the fifth metatarsal all the way down into the heel? why is this do you think or guesstimate? atrophy or just the semi crushed nerve? or none of the above?

It could be nerve but more likely is the tendon of the peroneal brevis healing due to all of the days of walking in pain. This needs to be pointed out to your doctor and see what he thinks.
