Yes, he could have cut a nerve. I had my first PF surgery on my left foot ten years ago. I still cannot hardly bend three of my toes. A nerve was cut during the surgery (shown by an MRI) and while it did regenerate a certain amount it still has never been normal. I was also in alot of pain for almost a year after that surgery. On the other hand I had my second PF surgery on 11/3 and I'm doing o.k. with that. It's still to early to tell but I can feel an improvement as time goes on and I never had the numbness I had with my first PF.
