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

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 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.

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
