Winging Scapula Recovery, odds w/o surgery

I suffered a Auto accident, double rear-end, and the docs suspect Long Thoracic Nerve injury. I have winging scapula, decreased control of the bicep, wrist, fingers, etc., and was wondering what the odds are that this can be fixed with PT? I have a really good PT, who has been treating me for Piriformis Syndrome/Sacroiliac Joint problems, and then we switched to the whiplash after the accident. Yep, whiplash too. I also get terrible crushing pain episodes that require a narcotic painkiller every 3-4 days that affect the arm, shoulder, neck and sometimes up the side of my face. I am not having much fun with this you know.
