Numbness

Posted by Terry D. on 10/06/03 at 21:09 (132519)

Just wondering how long the numbness lasted for those of you who have had the surgery. Today I am 5 months post op. No pain and am very active on the foot but I still have a considerable amount of numbness.....I can feel a pen when I rub it up and down the bottom of my foot so my skin is coming back but it still feels like I'm walking on bone.
Thanks for any comments.
