Question: Can an injury to the posterior femoral cutaneous nerve due to surgery heal? I recently had piriformis and sciatic nerve surgery. My surgeon seems to have either injured or severed the posterior femoral cutaneous nerve during the procedure. The back of my thigh has been numb with a burning feeling inside the leg since the surgery over two months ago. What are the chances that this will heal?

Answer: It's if severed I don't believe so,,,but then again,,they have been doing hand transplants
