The worst I've had is a 3 week concussion caused by temporary bruising of the brain... so I can't say my experience is as thorough as yours.. but articles written by respectable newspapers said he was unlikely to fully recover. I would have thought years rather than months to get near a suitable conative ability again right?
Rather think a three month coma eclipses any concussion claims.
Bruising of the brain although sounding rather trivial does entail permanent and usually irreparable damage and loss of whatever faculty is affected within that area of the brain.
Science has yet to discover a way of repairing bruising to the brain which effectively destroys brain cells, rehabilitation does what it says on the packet - try to overcome any loss with a greater effort from whatever components remain.
A period of rehabilitation whether it be one month, two or whatever is supposedly meant to prepare Sean for his return to a regular social order, his consultants would have thought it appropriate his treatment continue in such a manner, after which he may do occupational therapy then hopefully gain suitable employment.
Sean's progress is entirely in his own hands and the glib phrase of ''you only get out what you put in" was never more suitable.
