My Dad had a massive SAH in August, he wasn't expected to survive but he did. To be honest if anyone could it would be him, he was as fit as a fiddle and very young at heart. But he is still unable to speak or walk. He was in a coma for 3 weeks and at first we thought he had no use of his limbs whatsoever, however he now has really good grip in both hands. He has spoken a couple of times but that seems to have stopped and he isn't progressing speech wise at present. He appears to understand when asked a question and shows this by nodding or shaking his head but its hard to know how much he does understand. He has been moved to a specialist rehab unit and hopefully the Speech therapist will help. Has anyone experienced this, I would be really grateful for any feedback. I know he will never be the same man again and I know through previous chats with him that this situation is one that terrified him, I just wish I knew how to help him.
