I have recently had ankle surgery to remove cartilage and 3 cysts in the ankle joint. It has been 8 days since the operation and I am experiencing numbness under my foot, burning pain , pins and needle like pain and electric like shocks through me foot. I spoke with my surgeon two days ago and he has said to give it two more weeks to settle down, as in the swelling etc. he said he hopes there is no damage that has been done by the arthroscope. My ankle is swallon.will this cause trapment of the nerves creating this problem?  Is it common for this to happen after ankle surgery ? Will it go away? The pain is out of this world and even the use of strong opioid medications arnt relieving me of the pain.... Please help
