"Nerve Anatomically Intact"
« on: May 23, 2016, 04:51:22 pm »
Everyone always tells me that I "have nothing to worry about," because even though I have full facial paralysis on my left side, my facial nerve is anatomically intact. Does this actually make a difference? Does it really indicate a different prognosis than if my nerve were not anatomically intact?

Who is "everyone"?

If the nerve was not anatomically intact, it isn't likely to ever work again.

Being anatomically intact gives you some hope for improvement over a long period of time unless the nerve is anatomically intact but electrically unresponsive.
