Severed ulnar nerve from elbow. What does that mean?

95% Severed Ulnar Nerve 4 inches from elbow . This is 8 months later and I am still on a long road to any sort of recovery. I know that I have literally no chance of getting on SSI. However, My injury has deterred many prospective employers from making an accommodation for my injury, I m not sure what to do, I mean I m not broken right?

Thanks for writing to us.
A 95% severed ulnar nerve that too 8 months old has very less chances of recovery. Transdermal electric nerve stimulation might help in recovery to some extent. You can get this prescribed from your neurologist.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
