In brief: Nerve Damage

It sounds like nerve damage occurred with your injury.
Depending on the type of injury it can last anywhere from 6-9 weeks to permanent damage. This is something that needs to evaluated by a podiatrist or neurologist. After the evaluation they could give you a better idea based on your injuries.
