Had crushed nerves on foot. Tried surgery. Mentioned as not repairable. Possibility of repair?

Five years ago I crushed the nerves in my left foot . My PCP and neurologist said that it was not repairable. A year later a microneurosurgeon came to town andI made an appt with him to see if anything could be done. He said he could do surgery and give me a 95% chance of repairing the nerves, sadly, he was wrong. I moved 6 months ago and found a chronic pain dr to take care of my pain rx s. He was incredibly upset that the surgeon attempted this procedure and wanted to know why. I told him that Dr.Edwards felt sure he could repair them, but within 6 weeks of my surgery he was arrested for writing rx s for others, but keeping them himself. I found I wasn t the only person to have surgery done that shouldn t have. Is there any possibility of this ever being repaired? Thanks so much for your help. Best wishes, Susan Daley West Haven Utah 0000

Hi, the crush injuries of the foot are automatically get repaired in majority of the cases. The time of repair depends upon the person and his general health. Only thing to be taken care of is the bones, and they should be in position.
I to my patient with such condition prescribe neurotropic injections to be given for 10 consecutive days and to be continued every week. Advise to have good food. Thank you.
