Axillary Nerve Injury Questions

On Nov 2, I fell mountain biking and messed up my shoulder. I fractured my Greater Tuberosity, subluxed the joint posterior, and got axillary never injury. The bone was confirmed to have healed and I am currently working on ROM to get the motion back.

The only problem I am most concerned about is the axillary nerve injury. My deltoid has atrophy. Lately the last few weeks I have been getting tingling, burning, and twitching feeling in the area that is numb on my shoulder. Is this a sign that the nerve is coming back? My orthopedic surgeon says yes, but I was hoping to hear from someone who had it say so.

I also was wondering how far along until it comes back fully once the twitching and tingling starts? Also, I can raise my arm above my head, but I cant feel if its the deltoids that are raising the arm or other muscles compensating.

If anyone who had this injury or knows about it more than me can help, it would be much appreciated.
