Time varies: Nerve healing has many variables including the severity of the nerve injury and the different nerve injured. Some injuries are so severe that full recovery never occurs and some are minor and recover faster than expected. Neuropraxia of an intact nerve will have a period of calming followed by recovery of the nerve at a rate of approximately 1 mm / day and will depend on the length of the nerve.

As much as 18 months: Neuropraxia's are stretch injuries to the nerve. The nerves can slowly regenerate and probably by 18 months your are maximized. You need to be followed by your orthopedist and if they recommend a neurologic workup you may get ncv/emg studies done to assess the nerve function.
