I fractured my right ZMC over 8 weeks ago and was never advised to have any surgery to reduce the fracture and decompress the ION. Later I was told it would be difficult because after two weeks the bones need to be re-fractured to move them. But I've seen numerous cases where the nerve was able to heal quickly after the bones were properly set back. I'm very depressed that this might turn into a permanent condition, as all I've been told is I "might" get the feeling back. There's a cosmetic problem as well, since the zygoma was pushed into the sinus and I'm considering getting a cheek implant, but still unsure about the nerve situation. Any advice?
