Will facial paralysis be healed by surgery?

I was in an accident May 2009 and was diagnosed with facial paralysis, hearing loss and double vision due to nerve damage. Tests results came back good. I have my hearing back and no double vision but the left side of my face still has weakness. ENT doctor mentioned i would heal without surgery...will I?

Hello dear, welcome to health care magic forum.
Surgery will help only in acute paralysis following injury or when there is radiological signs of nerve compression.
In longstanding cases, surgery is usually helpless.depending on the degree of nerve damage, most of such cases will recover spontaneously; but slowly in few months.
Hope you will find my answer useful.
Wishing you a complete recovery. Thank you.
