He is continues crying. After one month of this incident he stopped little much crying and his head not stand properly.

Doctor says he will recover after 3 months.

It is possible to recover from his condition?

Thanks for posting your query.

The neurological incident happened after the procedure in case of your child recovers on it's own, as said by your doctor. But, it takes time. It could be from 3 months to 6 months. Recovery can be near total. Occasionally, residual effects are left behind.

You need to be patient. Whatever medications are prescribed are correct and are given to avoid further complications like seizures. Do not miss out the medications.

Do not worry. Your baby will improve over the period. She might need some stimulation exercises or physiotherapy later for faster recovery.

I hope, this answers your query. I will be available for follow up queries if any.

I wish her speedy recovery.
