so back in June i was out at the pool walking back to the table, and i stepped on the filter covers thats on the side (you know the little round plastic things that cover those holes); well apparently it was cracked in half and it was dark outside so i didnt even notice it.. Next thing I know my whole leg is inside this thing and im screaming because my whole foot and leg was throbbing.. i had bruises up and down my leg from my knee to my foot, my foot was all swollen from twisted it in the whole, and i sliced open the bottom of my big toe (ouch right!) I went to the doctor the next day and they said if i had gone in that night i would have needed about 8 stitches.. anyways, three months later its healed now i have a pretty scar.. but theres still a little lump, and it still hurts and i have a stinging numbing tingling feeling when i squeeze it or put any weight on it... i went to the doctor yesterday for some other things and asked him to just look at it and he told me i sliced it right where the nerves go to and i had nerve damage.. but thats about the extent he told me.. ive been looking online now for a couple hours trying to get more detailed info on it.. what nerve is it? how bad would it be affected? long term side effects, where does the nerve travel to and can it effect anything else in my body like maybe in my leg?? any kind of information would be GREAT.. so if anyone knows anything please help? I was just trying to find some sort of forum to ask questions!!

Thanks :)
