These nerves may be compressed by swollen muscles. Given time, when the swelling and inflammation of the muscles subside, the nerves may be able to regain their old functionality back. However, I understand your concern about the eventual recovery since it has been three weeks.

I suggest you discuss these options with your doctor and inform him of any new symptoms. For now, continue your exercises to aid in the recovery.
