Peripheral nerves can regenerate once the compression has been relieved. The rate of recovery and the degree of recovery varies by the severity and duration of the compression. Nerves can continue to heal and recover 18 months after the impingement.

How long does a pinched nerve in leg take to heal?

It occurs slowly

Sciatica
A pinched nerve causing leg symptoms usually occurs from nerve root irritation as the nerve exits the low back, commonly called "sciatica". This often occurs from a bulging intervertebral disc, arthritis (in older folks), or from other causes. Symptoms usually resolve on their own in several weeks, but can take months. Good PT and occasionally medications can be helpful to resolve the symptoms.

how long will a pinched nerve take to calm down?

6 weeks

Pinched_nerve
Nerves recover relatively slowly compared to other body tissues from effects of compression. Recovery depends upon duration of compression, severity of compression, location of compression (such as a bony prominence), the particular nerve and person's age & comorbidities. As a general rule 6 weeks may be the earliest in moderate cases.

How long will it take to recover from the pinched nerve surgery on my arm, or could it be a torn rotator cuff?

CAN VARY

Nerve
If the nerve was but incompletely compressed and just sustained injury to the myelin coverings, could have recovery within 4 weeks, but if axon is injured, the nerve regenerates at about 0.1 mm daily, and about the speed of fingernail growth. Therefore could take many months.
