Hi. I tore peronal ligament in my ankle. I was in a cast for a little over 2 weeks. about 10 days into it, my baby toe went numb. They changed casts and said it would get better. It didn't so they removed the cast and put me in a boot. I went for my 3 week check and it was still numb. The doc said it should go away. I am now on 3 weeks of a numb toe with NO signs of change.

I am going to get a 2nd opinion on it, but I am hoping to get some info from you guys.

Any advice would be appreciated.
