    Omg Janet I am so sorry, I have not ever heard of such a long recovery! My older cousin had it twice in 2 years and he looks good, as for me I had a very very hard time trying to recover, was out of work for 45 days I was not able to form a sentence that anyone could understand me! High high doses of predesone , I had what felt like electrical surges going thru the lower part of my head , awlful ear an eye pain, an absolute nightmare, although for the most part it's gone to others but I still have issues , I really don't think it ever goes away, I can really see it in pictures yet others don't, I sure hope you are not back at the beginning stages of this virus! I do apologize if my comment has not helped you ! I tried singing a lot just to exercise my facial muscles, best of health, Donna

    What residual affects do you have?  My face is a little crooked and my eye is slightly smaller after 4 years.  After this long that is as good as it gets.  There is nothing to be done for any improvement that I am aware of.

    Hi Janet, it's been 5 years, still my face tends to swell , I have massages and it helps so much, best way to tell is by taking selfies and see how your face looks, I also still have issues with loud noises and when I get tired my eye twitches, I have had to try to not have as much stress as before, which is easier said then done at times, I have my full body massages 90 minutes about every 2 months it helps so much , that includes full head an facial included, I still worry that it will return, it's something we must live with, when it happened I was newly married second time best time of my life I was totally happy , woke up with it, all the years of a misery first marriage and I was fine, go figure, I try to exercise my face I run my mouth a lot , hahahah , good luck and I hope it goes away forever, it's truly the strangest thing that's ever happened to me ,

    Have you recovered? Without actually seeing you I couldn't tell you 100%.

    If you have movement back on the effected side then I personally would say yes. However if you still have facial paralysis then unfortunately the effects of the condition are irreversible.

    I wish you all the best.
