Hello praveen,

Thanks for posting your query

Your wife having fracture shaft humerus left with radial nerve palsy.

Nerve injury your wife having is most likely Neuropraxia type of injury.

So we wait for 3 months to recover the nerve.

If not recovers in that time ,then we go for electrodiagnostic studies.
