Are you suffering from a head injury?
Although head and brain injuries can range in their severity, even a fairly minor head injury can have severe consequences. For example, if you suffer a concussion, you may need to take several days off work and undergo regular checks to ensure there are no complications.
In severe cases, a head injury can be fatal or it can severely restrict a person’s abilities. However, in many instances, medical professionals are able to improve the outlook for many patients. If a loved one has suffered a head injury, you may face a lengthy wait to find out how they will be affected.
Although some patients will have entered into a coma naturally, sometimes patients with head injuries are put into a medically induced coma, since it’s believed that this is the best way for the brain to heal. Whilst this can be traumatic and worrying for their loved ones, it can help a patient’s recovery in the long term.
As brain and head injuries can affect a person’s life significantly, they may need to change their lifestyles when they recover. If, for example, they are left with mobility problems, they may need extra help to get around or they may need an adapted car to make driving easier. Similarly, they may need to adapt their job role or give up working completely.
