I was affected by Bell's palsy when I was 7 years old. At that time electrical stimulation and physiotherapy was tried but there was not much improvement. After a year or so doctors said I can try for some surgery after I grew up. However, after I grew up I was told that if it didn't get cured within a year then there is no chance of cure.

I am 32 years old now and living with it for 25 years now. Though the symptoms are not easily visible, it becomes apparent the moment I smile. Is there any cure for this?

Thanks.
