    Hi Shaun, As with so many issues with breast cancer, it depends on the individual. It depends on the amount of damage to nerves as to how long it takes for them to recover. Nerve regeneration is not a quick process. You will usually start to feel tingling as the nerves start to get their sensation back again. I wish I could give you a time span as this is an all to common reaction to some of the breast cancer drugs. Hopefully, someone can give you a better time frame. This is a great question to ask your oncologist too. Take care, Sharon
