Hi,
Well on this site I just tried reading a lot of old posts. I searched the Web though and think I have a better idea now.
Somehow I got the impression that the Tibial Nerve was actually cut and was a bit confused about it all.
Course I'm always a bit confused :P

No cutting of the post tib nerve. The ligament is cut that binds it down
in the tunnel
