How can one recover from vegetative state ?

My friend suddenly slumped and went into comma 18 days after child birth . the head was swelling and the neurosurgeon operated on the head. since then, she has not come around. she is unaware of anything although she smiles, opens her eyes and yawns occasionally, gnashes her teeth and even cries at times. does it mean she is in vegetative state and can anything be done to save her life? I am deeply worried. Fra

Your friend has head injury and might have some fractures of skull,
Neuro surgeon might have operated for haematoma.
Due to depressed fracture some part of brain might have damaged resulting into coma.
Chances of recovery depends upon how much damage is in the brain.
After the report of x ray and mri we conclude more.
ok and bye.
