Re: Brain Injury & Surgery
just what exactly did they do regarding the "brain surgery'? it is possible he suffered some level of actual brain damage here or is in some level of coma too. coma is not always the 'out cold' type,believe me. when my son suffered an actual brain injury,he was 'in' a coma but at varying levels of them. some are just a state where a parson just sleeps too. some are a bit of awareness of things around them but they never open up their eyes or make eye contact. like i said,there are just many levels of real 'coma'. do you feel his docs are actually doing everything they possibly can at this point to even 'try' and get him up and out of bed so he can regain proper functions?
given what rehab hospitals do(been thru this with myself and spinal cord ijury and of course with our son)he realistically should be getting out of bed at least once a day and them really really working to get him there. the way you stated this post,i get the impression that they are not really trying to even do this for him? have they FULLY evaluated his true level of conciousness and his overall brain functions?
there just could be quite a few different reasons that he is where he is right now. it could be his condition,level of actual brain injury from the surgery or a very lazy type of staff or a doc who doesn;t know what the heck they are doing type situation too.
if you could explain a bit more detail here about how his overall condition actually is(level of awareness too) and what that surgery was for it would really help. this just doesn't sound really "right' given what is just supposed to happen following any surgery or brain injury type of situation either. marcia
