London (ANI): Oscar-winner Morgan Freeman is waiting anxiously for
his stretched nerves to grow back to normal so that he can fly his
plane and sail his boat again. The actor, who has been disabled
since two years after a car crash fractured his shoulder blade, has
learned he will have to wait another year until his nerves allow
him to be fully functioning once more.
"The doctor said stretched nerves are the hardest to heal. If
they had been severed, they'd grow back together much shorter time.
The nerves grow back at a rate of one inch a month," the Daily
Express quoted him as telling Penthouse magazine.
"Since I've got long arms, I've got another year for my nerves
to reconnect. My life has changed because I'm basically one-handed.
I can't fly my plane, sail my boat," he added.
