MY question to YOU is why, only 10 days ago, you trusted a doctor to perform surgery on your foot and now you do not have enough confidence in him/her to answer your questions and provide the correct care for you. I can have no idea as to why you are having severe pains or whether or not it indicates anything radically wrong, but what sort of research did you do into the quality of your doctor BEFORE you agreed to surgery if you are looking for outside advice so soon after the procedure? Have you expressed your concerns to the doctor whom YOU chose and demanded a better answer than that your pain and burning was "nerve endings?" If you so quickly have lost confidence in him/her, perhaps another doctor should be contacted for a look-see and evaluation.
