You should not worry, though I understand her symptoms are significant.

Severe concussion, brain bleed and neck injury take 3-4 weeks to show considerable improvement. Healing in these areas is slow.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
