My big toe is partially numb after my sesamoidectomy 3 weeks ago. Will the numbness go away? How long does this take?

My big toe is partially numb after my sesamoidectomy 3 weeks ago. Will the numbness go away? How long does this take?

Probably, months: Depending on what sesamoid was taken out, some nerves can get stretched or damaged. A stretched nerve will usually recover over a few months but improvement may continue for up to 18 months. A damaged nerve may recover, bit there may be some permanent numbness. Only time will tell and there is not much to do in the meantime. ...Read more

Have on and off again numbness in big toe since stubbing it this summer?

Have on and off again numbness in big toe since stubbing it this summer?

Trauma to nerve: When you stub your toe it is actually blunt force trauma to all the tissues in toe. The injury may not be bad enough to fracture bone but it can result in contusion-a 'deep bruise' to the soft tissues-skin muscle, tendon and nerves in the toe. Unlike the other tissues, nerve healing can take months. If the nerve was not severed, as happens in cuts to toe, the numbness should resolve. ...Read more
