I had surgery on my left ankle 7 months ago

Patient

Q: I had surgery on my left ankle 7 months ago. Since then I have cut the nails on my left foot plenty of times. But the nails on my left foot arent growing at all. I haven't been able to cut them once. Even if I tried they are too short. I haven't seen any other signs or symptoms on my left foot. Is this something I should see my foot doctor for? Is it bad circulation? Any ideas on what it is?

Symptoms:  Toe nails not growing
