Michael Schumacher will have to adjust to being a very different person, brain injury specialist warns


A brain injury specialist has warned that if Michael Schumacher survives after his skiing accident "he will not be Michael Schumacher".

French doctors have begun tests on the seven-times Formula One world champion, having been in an artificially induced come for more than two weeks after his head struck a rock while skiing off-piste in Meribel in France.

He has had an operation to remove a small part of his skull in a bid to relieve pressure on his brain but he remains in a critical condition.

There’s a debate here I wish I had the time to dedicate myself to - but, I don't.

Peace to Michael ad his family.

Doctors treating Michael Schumacher and other medical experts have told his family that "only a miracle" can save him, sources have claimed.

The seven-time Formula One world champion suffered serious brain injuries after hitting a rock during a skiing accident in the French Alpine ski resort of Meribel in late December.

He is being treated in hospital in Grenoble where he has been in an artificially induced coma for a total of 69 days.

Sources close to his family say the 45-year-old driver's wife Corinna and his brother, Ralf Schumacher, have been consulting brain specialists throughout Europe and have been told that his chances of recovery are minimal.

The family is said to be concerned that the French doctors treating Schumacher have little hope that he will recover and now assume that he will remain in a vegetative state for the rest of his life.

What sad sad news. I’ve been hoping for a miracle. It can still happen - I so hope it will.

Prayers to Mr. S and Family

peace

Prayers for him and his family. This is a horrendous time for them. I've been there with a close family member. Any brain injury is serious but when swelling has taken place, the odds of survival without lasting disabilities is rare.
My family member was in a coma for 47 days. He woke from the coma but he spent 20 years in a bed unable to speak or get out of bed. His ordeal showed us quite plainly that there are things far worse than death.
I pray for peace for all involved.

11 years of experience tells me there will be no miracle. he was gone probably within 48 hours of the accident. the machines have kept his body alive ever since.

Really? Because, I really dislike the guy, nearly killed a few drivers during the years showing a deep disrespect for fellow drivers, or sportsmanlike behaviors. Even so, he does deserve a chance to come off it himself.

Absolutely no discussion there, if true that he had the accident, became enraged and disoriented, then went cold are signs of severe brain damage.

Hmmmm . . . not trying to be cheeky . . .

but your note about public figures disclosing a bit more to their fans . . .

and I realize that most of us do what we can and know to do to take care of ourselves . . .

Nevertheless . . .

Not quite sure where I was going with this . . .

Maybe just . . . PLEASE TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF, as best you can, DEAR HEART.

what you say is so so so true.

I remember my first child drowning. he was about 2 and I remember when he arrived the frantic efforts with cpr and everything else and just praying that he would live. he was placed on life support and I remember saying to another medical professional after it was over that I was praying the whole time he would live and I am not a very religious person. there reply to me was "you have to be careful what you pray for".....he lived but was severly brain damaged. couldn't breath on his own, speak, eat...he couldn't even hold his own head up. he just recently died at the age of 12 after years of infections and complications.

those words she said to me "you have to be careful what you pray for" have gone through my head so many times in my job since that day.
