I do hope the speculation (and it is that) is wrong, the longer he remains in a coma the more medical professional can apply other cases etc and be asked to come up with an opinion.

ength of time in a coma has nothing to do with it. the doctors will keep schumi in a coma as long as it is necessary. the body has curative powers, and time is needed for the powers to work. NO doctor can say what will happen,so anything you hear at present is sheer speculation put ou by the media.
until the dctors actually bring schumi out of his induced coma,they cannot possibly say what his progress will be.

walrus. maybe a quote from bild. but it appears it was NOT from the surgeon or doctor. such "direct quotes" have been reported before, only for them to be denied.
as I said, NOBODY not even the doctors know what repairs the body is making, and these will NOT be known until schmi is taken out of the coma. only then can he be assessed

Unfortunately Richard, learned as you sound, you are wrong about the length of time in a coma, and I have recent and tragic knowledge through the post-traumatic death of a friend. Induced comas DO help stabilise areas of trauma, BUT the side effects can be as bad-worse, for instance the onset of pneumonia.

pc whereas I am sorry about your friend, I am sure that the doctors treating schumi are well aware of the possible side effects and are doing everything they can do to ensure there are none. induced comas have been known to be kept going for 6 months, with full recovery.
