I removed #17 on a pleasant and healthy 30yo healthy female last year (11/2017). It was a high risk extraction and the patient did develop some swelling and numbness immediately post op. I put her on a medrol dose pack and the feeling returned to nearly 100% after approx 6 months. Pt returned yesterday (approx 10 months after surgery) reporting that, as of 2 weeks ago, the numbness had returned to the extent immediately after surgery. Put her on B complex vitamin and will be seeing her 2 weeks, possibly referring to UF Grad OS. CBCT scan taken at 10 month post op appt looked normal (no disruption to the canal).
Have you ever seen paresthesia return after it had resolved?
