So i was on here back in Janurary, my father was in a coma, and they didn't think he would make it through it first night. To fill you in, he had an explosive infection in his brain stem, and the docs couldn't figure out what caused it. they ran every test known to man, and still nothing. So, after almost a month of us waiting for the worst, he woke up. They released him only after 3 days of him being awake into a physical therapy center. With still, no answer to what the cause was. I had turned to this website for answers, thinking there was something the docs were missing. Come to find out they had him on medication that wasn't supposed to be mixed together, so once he was in the rehab facility, they were supposed to take him off of it (it was bipolar and seizure meds) Now, here we are, and he is in the same hospital again, with the same symtoms. They still can't find any answers, and i am at a loss...he has diabetes, but if this was anything like a diabetic coma, he would come out of this with memory, and he isn't remembering alot of things. Could this be poison? I have asked the docs about strokes, but they aren't finding any evidence, other then the fact that his right side is weaker and numb now and it wasn't until after the first episode. PLEASE SOMEONE HELP!
