Received punch in the face, caused nerve damage, is recovery possible?
I broke my jaw due to being punched and it caused nerve damage in my face.
My lip and chin have been affected.
MY question is this , its been over 1 month and i’m losing hope. The chin and lip area feel very strange. I can feel cold and hot in those areas and feel sensation when rubbing (like a pen cap) across the area … but the tightness in my lip /and chin are driving me crazy . Feels like there is a rod inside my lip/chin . Are these all good signs of healing ?
I know you can only speak in general terms without seeing everything , such as ct imaging , the doctors, who are only plastic surgeons think I should be ok , but I cant help but to wonder since this is not their specialty .
I’m not sure what stage of damage was done to the nerve, but with this type of injury are these signs of recovery and do you know how much longer it will take ?
And since I can feel some feeling there, is it going to keep gradually returning or just stops ?
Because it improved a bit and now feels no different over the last 3 weeks or so
Thanks for your time and any help at all will be greatly appreciated
