Reply To: Still healing after nearly 3 years?

As much as the medical community claims to know about the nervous system, there is still a lot that is not known.  EVERYONE heals at a different rate and no one can tell you for 100% certainty that you will stop recovering after a set period of time.  What they tell you is what is typical for populations that have been researched, but there are always outliers that recover faster or that take longer.  What is known is that peripheral nerves recover at a VERY slow rate.  If you think you are still having recovery…then I guess it is possible 🙂  Thanks for giving the rest of us hope through your recovery at such a protracted date.
