What if patient seems to be well and recovering well and are back in the swing of productive society living?
Signs I have lived with are TBI patients may seem to be doing fine, but the outbursts of tempers and inability to enjoy a happy outlook of life, seem to overlook them in the assumption they are fully recovered because the symptoms do not always get reviewed by their healthcare specialists who are not trained in the signs of TBI after the wounds are seemingly healed.
