Help * infraorbital nerve issue

Maxillo-facial surgeons can't tell me if I have compressed (for sure) infraorbital nerve V2 dute to overlooked orbito-zygomatic minor fracture (2.5y ago). - little paresthesia, pain, anesthesia. They can try decompress the nerve..but there are some kinds of risks. Is it possible to determine if this nerve is permanently damaged or have still ability to recover ? any methods ? LEP ?  others? Surgeons said that CT can't tell exaclty if there is compression..perhaps MRI will show it in better way ?

Hi,
How are you? What other symptoms are present? Aside from neurological examination, diagnostic tests such as MRI and EMG may help. You may also benefit from a referral to a neuro-opthalmologist  for direct clinical examination .Take care and do keep us posted.
