Inferior alveolar nerve damage , strange question

Well 7 weeks ago I had a jaw fracture at the back angle portion of my jaw and have nerve damage.

The thing is the numbness in the lip and chin are almost gone but the tight feeling in lip and upper chin remain.

Anyone hve insight on this.?

Anytime my lower left lip moves in feels strange and tight
Kinda like something like a small coil is in it, the tight  and stretched feeling males me not want to talk or smile.

Any help on if this part of the nerve damage goes away as well.
Id say the nerve numb feeling has returned 80% yet the tightness restricted feeling has yet to subside.

Please any knowledge would be greatly appreciated

Sorry. I really have no answer as to the prognosis.

No additional support from others who have had inferior alveolar nerve damage. So much for the site being all that helpful
