Hi all of you
My brother Had cardiac arrest folllowed with coma and Brain Injury. He is now ar the rehabilitation centre.
Already walking a little, sitting, can read a bit, not really talking, only few words on different languages.
He is not responding to therapy as we would like. Not eating enough, not drinking, no wishes ... just stearingt to whatever, recognizing people but after 5 minutes for him is enough. Shedow of MAN he was. Sometimes Like a baby. He is 42 yrs old. Does not know what is year, thinks it is 2011 and he is 28 yrs old. Does not know where he is and why. Sometimes he asks why but forgets after 2 minutes.
Drs told us that he is not material for rehabilitaion. That his concesness is not on level where he would try. That anoxia is cruel one since it does not leave andy healthy cells. And basicaly that he has two more month and after the state is considered permanent with no more recovery. That he will not be able to live withouth 24/7 care. We were thinking he was doing so well since a month ago he could not even sit and now he walks and this words were like cold shower.
What do you think about this? Is recovery 6 month post Injury posible or?
