Dear Pam

I'm afraid I don't have an answer for you. It is very common though after surgery to have a lot of swelling in the foot and it may be that a nerve is being trapped or something. This is only a geuss, the surgeon who worked on your foot should be able to answer this for you. It is also normal for there to be a lot of pain in the foot post operation and it will settle down in time.
