Hello,

Tyler has a brain injury which has lead all his system controls especially his movements and swallowing compromised. He may recover slowly if he is relatively young (age?). His recovery is expected slowly over the passage of time (maximum 2 years). What you need to do a moment is to make him do physiotherapy daily of whole body to avoid contractures. Feed him regularly and daily via tube to ensure he meets his feeding requirements. Keep his skin especially his genital area skin washed and cleaned or moped thrice a day. He needs to do a postural change (assisted) every 2 hours to avoid bed sores. His recovery is slow and meanwhile needs maintenance therapy, the one i mentioned. Surgery can't bring a change but yes, if there is something more correctable problem like a blocked water flow (post traumatic hydrocephalus) in his brain or a left over big clot causing pressure on rest of his brain.

Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Muhammad Faisal Bacha, Internal Medicine Specialist
