Hi,

How are you?
Sensory nerves have sensory neurons and receptors to gather information from the environment. Motor nerves on the other hand innervate the muscles and cause the muscle to contract.
It is quite possible that sensory nerves may not have recovered.
What exactly are your symptoms?

Hi,

Yes the time required for the nerve to heal depends on the extent of damage. Neuropraxia is a mild grade of nerve injury while axontemesis is severe degree of nerve injury.
The regeneration of peripheral nerve occurs at the rate of 1mm/day. Depending on the extent of damage it may take few weeks to 3-4 months for complete recovery.
