spinal fusions and lingering effects

I have posted on here many times about my last year and the five surgeries I had and all the pain meds, which by the way is understated by the physicians on how hard it is to get off the meds. But anyway, I am about 7 months post op from my last fusion. I am still experiencing foot pain and numbness (Left Foot). My question to whoever reads this is, can the nerve damage lead to a mortons neuroma. I had a Mortons neuroma in my right foot and had it removed with success. Well, it is the same signs and symptoms I am experiencing in my left foot, which I didnt have any prior to the injury. Shooting pain when touching the pad of 3rd and 4th metatarsal. So again I ask, can the injury to my disks which caused footdrop on left foot and the numbness and tingling and sharp pains that come out of nowhere.

Thanks for any incite
