Loss of feelings in thumb after a deep cut

hey all,
I injured my upper thumb from a knife cut, had stitches placed in the area. After a few days I noticed that I lost feeling at the upper left side of my thumb. Do I need to get nerve surgery? or will it heal on it's own, also Am i at risk for getting a neuroma if I decide to do nothing?
