Concussion/Mild Traumatic Brain Injury - When Will I Recover ?
Dr. Rebekah Mannix is an emergency room physician and concussion researcher at Boston Children's Hospital.
Dr. Mannix works on the frontlines when it comes to dealing with concussions/mild traumatic brain injuries.
In a recent interview published in the May 6, 2013, edition of the New York Times, Dr. Mannix waded in on the issue of the medical profession's ability to predict how a specific person will recover from a concussion/mild traumatic brain injury:
" Head injury in general is a strangely archaic field"... "There is no predicability. I cannot say to patient A., 'You are going to be fine in a week.' I cannot say to patient B, 'You are going to be really sick for three months."
This coming from a doctor who deals with concussions/mild traumatic brain injury day in and day out.
So. When will you recover from the concussion/mild traumatic brain injury you suffered in your car accident ? Will it be a week, a month, a year or ever ?
The truth of the matter is that, in your particular case, medical science is unable to say.
All that your doctor can do is quote statistics and averages.
