bad cut on bottom of foot

About two weeks ago, I stepped on a very sharp blade and cut the ball of my right foot. I had to get 5 stitches. Immediately my right toe became numb. I’m under the assumption that there is some nerve damage.
Now anytime I put pressure on the wound, I get a sharp pain that shoots from the wound up to my toe (which is still very numb). I’ve very frustrated.
The stitches come out on Monday, but will this nerve damage ever heal on it’s own?

    That depends on several things- where the injured area is, how deep it is and if the parts were realigned well. The doctor who took care of you should be able to address your concerns.
