Our expert says:
You may have to be patient - unfortunately these things can take up to 18 months to recover. If the pressure on the nerves is relieved, it may take time for the nerve to regenerate. It may be useful to continue with physiotherapy even if it is just to prevent contractures of the joints and I would strongly advise you to see an occupational therapist to make her a hand splint to keep the muscles in the right position. Do not stop exercising the hand - improvement may come slowly and in small increments.
