It's been one week since my foot surgery (midfoot fracture excision and curettage of cysts) and the top of my foot is still numb. is this normal?

Of all the Nerve.: Being numb after one week is well within normal limits. Sometimes there is little or no numbness and other times, well. Give it some time to recover, say several months.
