Brief Answer: Yes, PN can slow healing Detailed Answer: Hi dear! I am sorry for the health problem you are experiencing! Yes, peripheral neuropathy can cause a slow or delay in fracture healing. It would be very helpful for me to give better prognoses if you provide me an electronervografia or Nerve conduction study report! Anyway you should discuss with your neurologist the possibility of starting pregabalin! Talk with your neurologist about my opinion. Wish you all the best and don't hesitate to contact me for any other queries! Dr Eris Ranxha
