    I had a hyprocure implant inserted over the summer. Initially, it was not causing me any problems, but after about 6 months, it was casuing increasing pain. The doctor xrayed the area again and found that it had backed out slightly. I was scheduled for a modified kinder a few weeks later so he removed the implant during the surgery and decided not to replace the hyprocure. I am now about 4 months post op the second surgery and find that my pinky toe and the one next to it is numb feeling. If I do scar massage, then I experience a pins and needles sensation in my two toes. The doctor gave me to cortisone shots a few week apart in hope of reducing swelling and the nerve pain. The symptoms remain unchanged. When I ask the doctor about the symptoms, I don't get any clear response. I know that each case if different and you have never examined me but is this something that I will have to live with or could time resolve the symptoms?

    I don't know what the cause of YOUR paresthesia might be, but in general, return of full nerve function after irritation or injury is unpredictable. Unless there is some specific and treatable cause, such symptoms generally will either get better, worse or remain the same.
