Foot numbness, scar tissue under skin, cramps in calves, groin. Foot surgery done. Treatment?

I had foot surgery in March of 2009. When I had stitches removed I told doctor my foot was partially numb and side of my foot. He blamed on the anesthesiologist who blamed it on the doctor. It still feels that way and I feel like there is a thickening under skin like scar tissue. I have little mobility and feeling and cramping have spread up calf and inner thigh to groin . Nothing shows up on tests except that my affected calf muscle is cooler than other.

It looks to me that it is some nerve injury on the foot .It is not a major nerve injury but small cutaneous nerve. I would suggest you to take Pregabalin and Methylcobal tablet for pain relief.
