Post Foot Surgery: burning toes

Posted by D.Gee on 2/14/03 at 12:12 (109152)

I would like something explained to me: what is the cause for burning of toes after surgery for hammer toes and removal of a damaged nerve in the area of those hammer toes. Surgery was Dec 19 2002 and that is 7 weeks since surgery!

Is this a normal occurence and I am taking antinflammatory medicine but
it still continues sometimes more sometimes less.

Thank you if you answer.

It could be from the damaged nerve that was removed . The end of the nerve has to heal. Try contrast bath. Hot warm for five minutes then cold water for five minutes then hot water
