Thumbs down Nerve regrowth in hand. Please help.


It would be great if anyone could offer me any information on nerve regrowth in the hand?

A month ago I had an accident with glass which cut my wrist and severed 100% of the median nerve, and the FDP and FDS tendons for the index and middle fingers. These were repaired in surgery the next day, and I have a splint for 6 weeks (2 weeks left now). I am left with numbness in my thumb, index and middle fingers, limited movement of middle finger and thumb, and I am unable to bend the index finger. I am doing therapy exercises every hour while awake.

If anyone has had a similar experience with this kind of recovery, I would like to know how gradual the feeling and movement returns. I understand the nerves can grow up to 1mm per day, and vitamin B is good for the regrowth- is this true?

It is my writing hand which is injured and I am eager to know when I will be likely to be able to write and draw again??

Thank you
