It's very likely to develop peripheral neuropathy. The funicular myelosis is responsible, in which the spinal cord is damaged owing to a lack of nerve sheaths. If the deficiency is detected early, some damage can be reversed. However, if the consequences of vitamin B12 deficiency have progressed too much, nerve damage is irreparable. Nothing as a thumb rule as in wha t time of duration B12 level would be normal from y weeks to 3 months.
