Waking up from induced coma
How long does it take to wake up from induced coma after TBI and regain consciousness ?
Hi Melissa, If you search on the forums you can find some information on this. It varies A LOT, but usually takes at least a few days. My husband has been in two comas, and the first time it took him a few days to Wake up, and the second time about the same, but lots longer to get back to "normal". Thinking of you, and please remember to look after yourself.
My brother was in a coma for 8 days after an attack which caused tbi he opened his eyes on Day 9 , he cried the first couple of days then smiled , we are now 5 month down the line and he’s classed as minimally conscious getting intense physio etc , every case is different , has your loved one showed any signs of waking up my brothers heart rate would always shoot up to over 100 from 60/70 as soon as he heard my voice we also noticed movement behind his eye lids a few days prior to him opening them, praying for you
