Not being a doc myself, I don't think any of us here can tell you whether the numbness is permanent or not. It's something only your doc can tell you or try to anyway.

With that said, I've not known many people who suffered as much damage as you have. A couple of people I knew long time ago from my rough ole days had some similar thing from fights they got into. Everyone is different and it seems to me that it really depends on how badly your nerves were damaged to begin with. Whether they were severed , partially or fully or just damaged. All of these things, again, only your doc can tell you.

I really hope it's not permanent damage and that in the weeks to come you'll begin to regain the feeling in your face again.


Thanks for that Lissa, my face is definately not paralyzed, its got all the normal movements and I can still feel heat, cold and slight pain on it.
First I just want to say I am sorry to hear that your going through this.. Being attack is scary enough.. and I hope you can over come it all..
I can only tell you my experience.. I was in an auto accident when I was 16 yr old.. I sustained a lot of injury to the left side of my face and eye. Mostly fractures.. I had a lot of lacerations and sine then 16 surgeries to repair everything.. I was numb totally on the left side of my face.. You could actually drawl a line down the center of my face..everything to the left was numb... It took about two yrs for all the nerves to heal gain feeling back.. I still have a little tingling on the top of my lip..when I touch it but thats about it.. I do agree it is very annoying.. Its even hard to drink something..
I was not paralyzed ever but it sure felt like I was.. I couldn't tell if I was moving my face like the other side... Is this how you feel? The one thing that did bother me and still bothers me is I am hypersensitive on that side.. If you would pinch that side I would probably go through the roof... Knowing that you do feel temperature change and have a little pain on that side tells me that you have a great chance of gaining full feeling.... Just give it time.. Like I said.. I could not feel anythnig and I gained it all back..
I wish you the best of luck.. Let us know what the dr thinks..
