With your history, your doctor seems to be right. the recovery depends on the severity of nerve damage. i think your doctor must have done MRI once you had complained of mentioned symptoms. its basically an expectant management. Any sort of intervention can do little. though you can always go for second opinion anytime as i can't see your MRI. BUT NO MATTER WHAT, A POSITIVE ATTITUDE DOES A LOT GOOD IN TURNING AWAY THESE TIMES. TC.:)
