He can't talk, and is only responsive to pain or movement (eg: turning him, changing him, doing passive bedside therapy and making him sit up will make him open his eyes). I am eagar to know what other things can I do to stimulate his brain so that the good but sleeping ones can replace the functions of the damaged ones? Doctor said his brain has strunken alot during these months and to make the damaged brain cells replaced by good ones are the only chance for him to get better...
Hi, I just joined this group today. I was in a coma for over a month. I could hear but not respond nor move at all. .
My heart goes out to you as I think it was harder onthe people around me then on me. I was very relaxed, sometimes fustrated at being moved around, not worried about anything,still felt like I was ok no matter what happened. I was not in any pain.
I was wishing people would talk to me normal. Just like everyday.
not telling me to open my eys or move. I could not.
Hang in there, many have recoved from a coma, I did.
It was music I hated( loud hard rock) that finally woke me up. it got me mad and i wanted to turn it off.
Good luck, God Bless,
Post coma Nancy
I joined to talk to anyone who was in a coma so I can conect with someone whos been there. Can someone whos been in a coma contact me? Please.
