Since herniaplasty and appendectomy outer thigh sometimes feels like its burning and is numb, like dentist type numbness. Feels like fire is normal?

In brief: That is due to opera

It is common after cutting into skin to feel numbness.
It is the result of tiny nerves having been cut with the knife. They take a year or two to regenerate. So you can ignore it and get your mind off of this area. It will eventually become normal after sometime.
