In reply to: Louise 's message, "Nerve Damage" on 19:16:26 12/15/03 Mon

Hi Louise,
A few years ago I cut my thumb and forefinger on a table saw accident. Everything is ok by the way but one of the tendons didn't heal so one finger droops.
The doctor at the time told me that the nerves tend to grow back, but they take a long time to do so.
My thumb on the palm side has slowly regained most of it's sensation in the last few years. I have a slight feeling like the thumb is asleep or slightly numb remaining. None of this effects how I use my thumb by the way.
Hope this might help. I hope Ben has a swifter and more thorough rehabilitation of his nerves, and whatever is left does not hurt his use of his leg or feet.
