User :   i had an accident and the window glass cut my radial nerve, i guess it about 15 to 20 cm from the injured part to the wrist. My doctors are not giving me more information on the nerve growth or the next step in the treatment procedures. i wanted to know what are the chances of this growing back and how long itâ??ll take. What is the diet and is there any exercise that will help the growth of the nerve. there is no sensation in my thumb and index finger and iâ??ve found out that its common in this situation.
