Unhappy corm rot

I have a dwarf cavendish overwintering inside. The stem fell over ,I believe this to be from overwatering.The corm is 90% solid. Is there any chance of cutting the corm back to solid material,I realize it goes through the centre. Is a regeneration possible through the root, which is very well developed. If anyone has an idea or similar experience,please let me know,thanks,Dave.:

Default Re: corm rot

I would not cut the corm back, but pull away rotting material. Afterwards, place it in some not-dry but not-soggy soil and let it progress from there. Choose a soil that does not have moisture retention agents built-in.
