    How long does it take a nerve to regenerate on a cut thumb?

    I CUT MY THUMB LOW ON THE PALM SIDE.ABOUT 2 IN ACROSS IN A UPWARD SLICE, CUTTING WATERMELON. I KNOW I CUT A NERVE. HALF OF MY THUMB IS NUMB.BUT NOT JUST NUMB IF I TOUCH ANY PART OF THE NUMB AREA IT SENDS ME THREW THE ROOF LIKE I JUST HIT THE NERVE AGAIN.

I CAN MOVE AND BEND IT BUT DONT WANT TO DISTURB ITS HEALING PROCESS  SHOULD I MOBILIZE IT? AND FOR HOW LONG? IM WORRIED EVERYTIME I MOVE IT JUST A LITTLE IT WILL UNDO ALL THE PROGRESS OF THE NERVE REGENERATING. HELP PLEASE !!!!

    Not a doctor here but somtimes a cut nerve can be permanent.   My wife cut her thumb pretty bad 3 months ago and it went numb like you described.  I urged her to go to the ER but didnt listen to me (she's the boss haha).  Anyways she still has issues with her thumb although the numbness is mostly gone.  I say mostly because after extensive use like texting etc it gets stiff.

      She said there was throbbing pain for about a week before it started to get better.  It sounds like your cut is much worse than what my wife went through.  I would see a doctor ASAP.
