Sural Nerve
What are the symptoms of Sural nerve entrapment?
I am trying to find out what causes my ankle and toe pain - peroneal nerve decompression was done 3 months ago but I still have this excruciating pain in my outer ankle, spreading to my little toe.Sometimes my calf aches as well.
I cannot walk properly because of this pain.
Please help?

I strongly advise that you consult the surgeon who performed the peroneal nerve decompression for a follow-up examination. He/she will be able to advise if pain is normal at this stage and if further investigations will have to be done.
