PVS is a very bad to happen with anybody it seems he has recovered consciouss, but what he needs to recover is function, function is a learned behaviour, it needs a persistent and contsistent stimulus from the parents to the child to recover the function, here medications are no use. persistent stimulation with cortical electrical stimulation may cause recovery of the function. all the best

I have written about another boy. He has recovered too much. His feeding tube is removed and now he is feeded by mouth. He has started talking by repeating words. My son is too recovering. Now he tries to assist during exercise but still without capability to initiate any move himself.
