Hello sir my mother age 65 diagnose right side bell palsy, right year vascular. Lesion, herpes zoster. She was treated in hospital n was given steroids within 72 hrs. For past two month she is going for physio. After two months we have done ncv test report suggest she has severe right side facial nerve entrapment (axotmesis) n blink reflexes show no recordable latency of r1 n r2 on right side. Please suggest whether she has some chances of recovery or not Or should we go for a surgery. Is it a viable option. Thanks.

Muscle stimulation of facial muscles along with kinesiology taping therapy gives much better improvements in these types of cases.
