Hi, I'm new to this site, does anyone have any experience with minimally conscious state. My husband suffered a TBI on 23/12/15 & has just undergone a SMART assessment. This has diagnosed he is in MCS. He is aware of us, moves his arms & legs , tracks us when we move around his room, cries when we tell him personal things & does the occasional movement to voice command. We are also sure he us trying to speak as he groans quite a lot. Has anyone been in / experienced MCS & how long did it take to emerge ? Thanks, I'm worried sick as this is not the result we were expecting.
