Diabetes And Seizures: What Are They? What Are The Symptoms?

    Prolonged diabetic coma

    Hello everyone,
    I'd like to ask you If you know anybody who was in diabetic coma for more than 1 month? Or maybe someone here has such an experience? My husband has been in coma for 33 days now and it seems that he is not getting any better. Doctors say this is very unusual and that my husband has probably severe brain damage (in deeper structures of brain). I'm still looking for some information but it seems that diabetic coma usually lasts for couple of hours or days, not weeks or months. I'm so scared that he is not going to wake up
    Sorry for my spelling, I'm not English.

    I have been talking to different doctors and all of them say that it is a brain damage for 100% and they know that the cerebral cortex and the deeper structures of his brain are damaged but they don't know how big the damage is. I just would like to know if there are people who survived such damages and came back to normal life. I know that the 100% recovery is impossible.
