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. ...Read more

Have drop foot (b12 deficiency post gastrectomy)& was told nerves regenerate @. 1/month, can I do anything to speed this up? Vitamins? Exercise? Rx?

No known way: Nerve cell growth is dependent on 'axonal transport' proteins and necessary nutrients have to flow along the length of the nerve cell to regenerate some of the far end.
