Thanks for posting your query.
Renerve injections contain methylcobalamin which is indicated for nerve related symptoms like numbness, paresthesias, etc. You need to get your grandfather's symptoms re evaluated by a neurologist. In case the symptoms are persistent then he may continue with the injections or if possible oral supplements after consulting his neurologist.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
