Patience!: First the good news: peripheral nerves are capable of growth and repair even after being severed. However, the process is very slow and is often incomplete. They grow at a rate of 1 mm a day, or about an inch a month or a foot per year. There is nothing that will make the nerves grow faster. Good luck!
