Does anyone know how long a nerve needs to be severely compressed before significant damage is done?
I know that there are several mechanisms in place and if the nerve is starved of oxygen then it is more serious. I wonder if anyone has information or experience on damage or recovery and time frames?
I had a significantly compressed and subsequent inflamed nerve for 6 months. I am 3 months post-op for sorting it and my pain issues and foot numbness etc has not really changed much. I am better than I was but still severely restricted by a very irritated nerve and reactive back.
I would really appreciate your thoughts. Thank you.
