Peroneal Nerve Regeneration
Nerve Repair: All peripheral nerves regenerate if not permanently damaged at a rate of 0.5 mm/day. Read more
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). Within brain and spinal cord these nerves connect to other nerves via synapses on both axons and dendrites. A nerve can carry information regarding sensations, and ...Read more
4 weeks post op:doc did an ultrasound of my mdn nerve at the point it was transected yestdy. It was repaired and in tact -however the nerve was inflamed as well. Is that normal during nerve regeneration?
Which nerves?: Most of the time will not be any nerve damage. If there is a degeneration due to any cause central nerves like optic (eye), auditory (hearing) olfactory (smell) will never regenerate but peripheral nerves (myelanated) will regenerate at the rate of 1 mm in every couple of days.

I had a bad hand injury and severed my clavicle nerve. Can DMSO cream can help with nerve regeneration?
Can supplements help with nerve regeneration after a median nerve transectionand a 3 tendon repair? I am taking acetyl I carnitine, fish oil and quercetin.
Minimal benefit if: Any. Nerves grow very slowly and if the distance is too great they may not regenerate. While those supplements will give some benefit but most of the research suggests little benefit. I personally feel they are still good supplements and overall relatively safe, but I just don't want to lay too much confidence in them for regrowing nerves, give it time, at least 6-12 months to even thing about it.

Is bovine collagen a viable nerve regeneration option for nerve damage due to wisdom tooth extraction? Heard incredible things about it.
Never heard as such: Bovine collagen has been used for many years in conjunction with bone graft to cover the grafted site, or as a bone substitute in areas that bone fill is desired. I have never heard of any potential, nor capability for nerve regeneration. Please double check with your surgeon... You might be misunderstood. Othrwise this is a dangerous, non-science based claim.

Regeneration after footdrop? Peroneal nerve was affected. Muscles twitches with dorsi, tingling. I feel like stretching leg and back all time. Feedbac
Can nerve regrowth cause pain in the toe? And what can u do about the pain how long does it last for?
What is nerve regrowth in the site where I had part of my nail removed but is still painful after 5months what do they mean nerve regrowth?
When a nerve is cut:
Both the nerve and the insulation are severed
sometimes the fibers inside the nerve break while the insulation remains intact
if the insulation has not been cut the end of the fiber farthest from the brain dies the end that is closest to the brain does not die after some time it may begin to heal
new fibers may grow beneath the intact insulating tissue until reach the muscle or skin. Read more
Axonal growth: "nerve regrowth" as you say typically refers to a nerve's ability to regenerate its ability to transmit information. This usually is regrowth of the axon of the nerve and not the neuron (nerve body). The axon is like the wire that transmits information from the nerve body to the destination (i.e. A muscle or another nerve.). Read more
Can a optic nerve be regeneration? I read about it a lot in the internet and I seek for a solution, what can you tell me about it?
Six weeks post TLIF and developed moderate allodynia on top of foot. Is this CNS or PNS nerve damage? Is regeneration possible? If so, how long?
Can improve: Painful sensory changes in the lower extremity following back surgery are likely manifestation of stretching of the nerve root. This is a condition known as neuropraxia. This can improve, and may take up towards 12 to 18 months. Beyond that, improvement is not likely. Medications like Neurontin (gabapentin) may help minimize painful sensations. Certainly you should discuss with your surgeon. Read more
Biphasic response: Typically, recovery occurs in two stages, with some initial improvement in the days or weeks after the surgery (as stunned nerves wake back up), followed by months of no real improvement and then finally a second stage of improvement (as regenerating nerve fibers finally grow to reach their targets). The important thing is to keep as active and limber as possible while waiting. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Foot drop: The common peroneal nerve branches from the sciatic nerve. It includes the deep and superficial peroneal branches. These nerves provide sensation to the anterior (front) and lateral (side) parts of the legs and to the top of the feet. They innervate muscles in the legs which lift the ankle and toes upward (dorsi flexion). Read more
