My sisters has been off sedation for 6 days after being put into a coma


My big sister who is 21 was hit by a car going round the roundabout, she has a TBI, she’s been moved to another room now but she is breathing on her own and getting less dependent on the ventilator, she’s my absolute best friend and I can’t bear to see her like this :( when she opens her eyes she looks like she’s daydreaming and it’s hard to tell if she’s looking at you, she yawns, swallows and moves her mouth sometimes,

She was admitted on the 21st August

Anyone had any similar stories?

PS the doctor said she may be severely disabled, is that for certain or do they tell that to all the families just in case?

Thank you so much, you’ve really given me hope.

So sorry to read about your sister. I hope her physical injuries aren't disabling. As for coming out of coma, it takes some time to come back to 'reality'. The whole time I was in ICU I was living in a world where dreams and reality were indistinguishable.

Best wishes to you.
