My son substained his TBI from an accident 10 months ago when a rototiller that he was operating had a 2 and a half inch pin came off it and and it was embedded in his brain. It took 2 days for the drs the realize that he had the pin in his brain. He did surprisingly well after his surgery. I think alot has to do with the youth of the 20 year old body. We had been told that it takes about a year for the brain to heal and for the swelling to go down. My concern is that in the last couple of weeks, he is having memory problems, his periphial vision is decreasing again, and he is having vision problems just like the months following his brain surgery. We have made an appointment with his neurologist and for a scan to see if there are any problems that may be developing but the appt. is not till next week due to the dr. being out of town. Has anyone else had reaccuring problems like this? We almost lost him once and we are so scared that these are problems that are related to brain swelling, but almost a year later?
