Reversing Nerve Damage Taxol
Sometimes: Some optic nerve damage is reversible. For example, optic neuritis frequently recovers completely, when the cause is found and can be treated. Optic neuropathy due to vascular disease sometimes recovers. Traumatic injuries of the optic nerve may or may not recover. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
A complete nerve transection will leave an area totally numb. The distribution of the numbers depends upon where the nerve was cut. A partial nerve injury may leave the area tingly or incompletely numb. Finally even if the nerve is not cut the swelling and bruising to the tea can affect the nerve as well. Usually we consider sharp penetrating injuries as likely having nerve lacerations when sensation is lost. A hand surgeon can examine the hand and pinpoint the site or extent of nerve injury and recommend ...Read more
Depends: On time, severity, etc. Specifically depends if the neurons have died (not recoverable at this time since an extension of the central nervous system) or are just in "distress" and could recover when the inflammation or inciting factor is resolved. Typically, not reversible to normal. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Possibly: Nerve injury implies some kind of damage to the nerve itself. While spinal cord and nerves are both nervous tissue, nerves typically are structures that have branched outside the spinal cord. Injury to the sciatic nerve, for example, is not considered a spinal cord injury. They are very different structures. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Brain not affected: Given the types of TOPICAL TAGS I see you have used for this question the short answer is NO. There is absolutely no relationship between penile "nerve" damage as you state and some type of future dysfunction of the brain in terms of a functional or neurodegenerative order. ...Read more
Variable: Generically, if only the coverings of a nerve are involved (myelin), and healing begins, it will take about 4 weeks. If the central portion of the nerve fibre is involved (axon), recovery is the speed of finger nail growth (.1 mm daily). Depends on location, causation, and whether successful treatment is available. ...Read more
Surgery complication: With any surgery, there is the risk of complications. Some of possible complications are anesthesia complications, bleeding, blood clots, lung complications, infection, persistent pain, hardware failure, implant migration, nerve injury, spinal cord injury, sexual dysfunction .... ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Many facets: Sensory neuropathy is broken down into large fiber (loss of sensation, loss of proprioception) and small fiber (burning, tingling sensation). Motor neuropathy causes gait instability and deformities of the feet. Lastly autonomic neuropathy effects include stomach emptying and erectile dysfunction. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Yes, but rare: Serious nerve injury is rare, with significant permeant damage occurring in only 1/10,000 patients. However temporary numbness, pins and needles sensation, or less commonly motor weakness can occur in up to to 10 -15% of patients. In most cases the symptoms are mild and transient. ...Read more
Rare but possible: Lidocaine is one type of local anesthetic or "numbing medicine". It is used for numbing skin, in nerve blocks, and in epidurals. It should not be directly injected into a large nerve because the nerve could be damaged. This is why ultrasound is often used to place nerve blocks, so that the local anesthetic is injected near, not in, the nerve. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Neuropraxia is defined as a temporary loss of function of the nerve. Some nerves are purely sensory while others carry both sensory and motor fibers. Traumatic contusion injuries to nerves or nerve compressions can cause Neuropraxia. Sensory nerves like sural nerve in the leg or mixed sensory and motor nerves like the median and ulnar nerves in the forearm & hand ...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
