Do Reconnected Nerves Actually Grow Back And Work
The brain and spinal cord communicates with what is occurring in the internal organs and limbs by nerve fibers where are like electrical wires with insulation (myelin) and the "copper" (axon).

I had a bilateral release on my knee over 3 yrs ago, its still sore, anything i can take that will help the nerves grow back faster?cant work cause of
Healing time 4 nerve: An RFA is a radio-frequency ablation, meaning the nerves may not grow back after such a procedure. Keep in mind that a nerve may "heal" about 1 cm (0.4 inches) per month.

How long does it take for nerves to grow back from a bilateral release on knee? Had one a yr and 5 months ago, my knee has been feeling better lately
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! ...Read more
Had a bilateral release on my knee 3 yrs ago in march, how long does it take for the nerves to grow back,im starting to feel better lately,is that why?
Nerve injury: The peripheral nerves near the kneecap can sometimes be cut during surgery, which may be unavoidable. This commonly leads to an area of numbness over the front of the knee. That area usually shrinks with time, but may be permanently numb. After 3 years, it is unlikely to change significantly. ...Read more
Nerve Recovery: Nerve injuries are classified as follows: a first-degree injury, or neurapraxia, will recover within days after the injury, or it may take up to three months. The recovery will be complete with no lasting muscle or sensory problems. A second-degree injury, or axonotmesis, also will recover completely; however, the recovery will take much longer than with a first-degree injury. ...Read more
Is there any form of thermal ablation that is a permanent pain stop for chronic back pain or will the nerves still grow back?
Nothing Permanent: Usually RFA lasts at least 12-18 months on average. Some people can get less relief if nerves re-grow sooner. In my patient base most people will come back for repeat treatments at around 12-15 months. Some of my patients have had multiple years of relief. Sometimes after the 2nd or 3rd treatment the nerves grow back slower. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Yes: When cutaneous nerves in the skin are severed, they almost always regrow; this can be relatively swift or take months.

Is wearing away of myelin sheath what causes nerve damage? Can myelin sheath grow back to reverse damage? I have heard yes and no from doctors.
It's one cause: Demyelenating disease is just one cause of nerve damage that can occur over the course of a lifetime. Some scientists have found that the body can recruit the cells that make myelin to start making it again, but this process is very slow and incomplete.Researchers are working on finding ways to stimulate the repair of myelin and ways to protect myelin and the cells that make it from further damage ...Read more

Can numbness after C-section take upto a year to go away. 8mnths pp.. still bit numb on one side.. will nerve grow back.. can something be done. Help
Yes: Numbness around a c/section scar is normal. The area of numbness should get smaller with time but doesn't always go away completely. Usually it eventually gets small enough that it doesn't bother you any more. Good nutrition, exercise and time usually solve the problem. There isn't a good intervention to make it get better faster. ...Read more

I had a bone spur removed from my l5/s1 due to nerve compression. How likely are they to grow back?
Somewhat likely.: By bone spur, i assume you are referring to osteophytes caused by arthritis to the facet joints of the back. Facet degeneration is a continous process, and over time, will cause increasing bone spurs. Most of the time, we can accommodate these bone spurs, without surgery. In some instances, the bone spurs will cause enough nerve compression, causing severe pain, weakness and numbness. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
