2 experts have warned that the previous Michael Schumacher is probably gone.
Britain’;s Telegraph newspaper recently reported that the Formula 1 legend’;s family has been advised by the health-related group at Grenoble that, eleven weeks into his coma following a skiing accident in the French Alps, “Only a miracle” will conserve him now.
And the chief doctor at a rehabilitation hospital in Basel, Switzerland, informed Sonntagsblick newspaper: “The probability of a complete recovery for Schumacher is consistently lower.
“The renowned, laughing, quick Schumi will possibly not be noticed yet again,” coma expert Mark Mader explained.
“The longer someone is in a coma, the less properly the brain can recover. When [Schumacher is] awake, significant injury is probably to remain.”
Mader also defended experts who have speculated about Schumacher’;s issue and recovery, amid criticism.
“What is genuinely the situation with him, no 1 understands,” he explained. “Not even his health-related staff. The speculation is in the end the prognosis.”
According to Italy’;s La Gazzetta dello Sport, exams at the Grenoble hospital have shown that Schumacher, 45, is not paralyzed.
But there are also rumors the German, who weighed about 165 lbs. at the time of his skiing crash in the French alps, has lost more than 20 lbs. in the hospital.
Schumacher’;s final F1 teammate, Mercedes’; Nico Rosberg, informed an interview with Playboy magazine that reports of his countryman’;s condition are affecting him, as he knew the 6-time planet champion properly.
“But I believe that, if anyone can do it, it is Michael, with his will to fight,” explained Rosberg.
