Road Accident

Hi. My wife met with an accident on 02/01/2010 and suffered head injury. A CT scan was done and Craniectomy was done immediately with 3 hours of the accident. She was hospitalized for 63 days before she was discharged. At the time of discharge she was able to walk with support but not much movement with her limbs were possible. We went to Arya Vaidya Sala in kerala for Ayurvedic treatment and within 7 days there was an amazing development. However, After One month of treatment she was able to walk on her own without support. However, she was a bit skeptical and used to call for help while climbing stairs. Her Thyroid levels had also gone up. As on date she is able to manage all her activities by her own. Since she was hit on the Left side of the brain, the right side is slightly impacted. Her Right leg, while walking is faced with some weakness. She is almost off ayurvedic trmt now. She is consuming 300 mg of eptoin as per the neurosurgeon's prescription. Can you please help me in telling
1) how much more time will it take for her to resolve her issue of the right leg.
2) Are there any scans/tests which would help me in getting this info.?
3) How much more time she has to consume the Eptoin?
4) What would be the time by which she would normalize fully?
5) Are there any chances of any complication going forward?

Hi
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
Actually though this is not what you want to hear, your wife’s neurosurgeon can best explain all the questions to you. How long it will take depends on the extent of injury in the brain and that will also decide how long Eptoin needs to be taken. Also following head injury neurological deficit can be partial or complete. Hence a repeat CT scan or preferably MRI will be needed to assess the present condition of brain. Depending on this the neurosurgeon can tell whether the partial loss of limb use is permanent or temporary.
Please consult your specialist. Take care!
