Will my golden pothos ever look like it once did?

2 months ago

I was recently away for a week or so, during which time a caterpillar ate through much of my giant golden pothos. While the leaves still look healthy, many also look like Swiss cheese, which is a bit saddening!

Will new leaves grow to replace these and how long might I expect that to take if so? Someone involved with plants came around recently and said she thought the new leaves would only grow towards the top. I'm not sure why that would be, but obviously it would be great if it could eventually look how it did when I brought it home.

Thank you in advance for any thoughts!
