Schumacher neurologists: Michael Schumacher unlikely to make 'full recovery'?

Neurologists say that the race car driver Michael Schumacher is "unlikely" to make a full recovery following a skiing accident that left him hospitalized and in a medically induced coma. On March 2, FOX News reported that Michael Schumacher's head injuries were far too serious for him to come back from. It has been months and Schumacher has not made any significant improvement.

"It does not bode well. The fact that he hasn't woken up implies that the injury has been extremely severe and that a full recovery is improbable," said Dr. Tipu Aziz, a neurosurgery professor at Oxford University who is not affiliated with Schumacher (via FOX News).

Some neurologists say that Schumacher could still recover and be okay. Some say that it can take up to 12 months for a patient with this kind of head injury to recover. Many feel that it is too early on in Schumacher's journey to throw in the towel.

Of course this is all very frightening for Schumacher's loved ones (especially his wife) as they have been hoping and praying for some sort of miracle or at least a sign that Michael is going to be okay. This process is emotionally draining and as the weeks go by, hope tends to diminish.

Neurologists working with Schumacher obviously can gauge his situation best but there hasn't been any "good" news thus far. Michael Schumacher is still in a coma and is listed in "stable condition."
