Hello,

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you,

Shantal

No
If the nerve is damaged, some function might come back on its own over a year or more, but any permanent damage can not be reversed.....


I am not sure why you think there is an operation for this?
