My father has been diagnosed with hypoxic encephalopathy after respiratory arrest due to medical error while having endoscopy, the oxygen supply wasn’t sufficient for about 25 mins , it has been 46 days today since his injury, and yet he’s still in what I can call vegetative state, sometimes he’s more conscious that he looks me in the eyes or like open his mouth when I ask him to , other times he’s just not there .
Doctors keep on saying that it’s the best he will get , and that there’s no chance for any progress, but I’m not giving up on him no matter what , he’s the only one for me .
He’s 48 with DM, HTN and HCV , is it too early for them to judge that he’ll stay the same or there’s a chance he will get better? Please anyone with similar case help me I’m totally desperate and helpless.
I’ve been doing my researchs since he got in , And I’ve seen some topics talking about how high doses of Omega3 fatty acids helped 3 guys to recover from coma or vegetative state , although their cases was traumatic brain injury unlike my father’s case but I found another research that assumes it might also help with non-traumatic brain injuries, I talked with the doctors but they refused to perform this protocol on him as they never tried it before, but I want to ask you guys if someone tried this protocol and if it helped them, if so, I’ll try to talk to the doctors again , because if there’s nothing else we can do , and if it’s not going to harm him so I say why noy try it .
I’m trying not to lose hope and fight for my father but it feels so so so bad I don’t even believe it’s really happening, Please everyone give me your opinions and support, thanks you
