Nerve damage 2 years after procedure

I had a coronectomy in 2014 with no issues, then 2 years ago I had to have the root removed as was causing pain. Ever since then I have had permanent numbness in lower right side of face. I was told nerve damage should only be temporary but obviously not in my case. It tingles and burns constantly and sometimes I feel as if I am drooling ( I’m not ) but feels horrible. Any advice?

Can't be too specific because we have not even Xrays to see. It sounds like they suggested there was a risk of nerve damage, and unfortunately this sounds like you are the unlucky one. Go back to the surgeon - he/she won't be able to undo the damage, but may suggest medication to help with the symptoms.
