Hi, my mom is still in coma since Nov.27,2011. She is presently confined in a hospital in Hong Kong and our family is in the Philippines. Only my sister who resides in Hong Kong visits her but not so often. Every minute of the day I think of my mom and I miss her terribly. Until now we don't see any sign of response from her. What are the other things can we do to help her recover? I'm planning to visit her next month.

Recovery from coma should be "a piece of cake" for the brain...if we wait enough, and stimulate enough.
Why coma patients die? For depression [i.e. fear and lack of faith]...causing decreasing in the immune response...then infections...and death.
What might be happening, then? We, the family, are too scare to deal with the patient! We think we can not make it to the end of the whole recovery! Medical doctors help to think in this way, or simply amplify this way of thinking.
But if we check what the brain can do during development and in our daily life, it will be really not a surprise to realize that reconnection and born of new neurons should be a peace of cake. Believe me, reconnection is not "rocket science" for neurons...they can deal with really challenging problems. Finding the way to reconnect is a matter of natural response...what the new neurons are going to do? Simply, check what is lacking and fill the gap. Hormones (i.e. estrogen) can help (a lot probably). Music can stimulate the nervous system. Our words, physical therapy and diet can do the rest...of course, if that is the will of the patient. Faith and spirituality can help also.

FINALLY ! Read this twice if you cannot understand what brain plasticity means. Maybe the physician who judges the coma patient to be a vegetable if he wakes up should be sent back to med school !
