Thank you for replying. I just came back from the hospital where she is admitted. I am going to provide you the summary of events which took place after the above sequence. I am also attaching the images of her MRI, CT, and x-ray. After the surgery, the doctor said that she has C5 fracture dislocation with spinal cord injury resulting in weakness of all four limbs and respiratory paralysis. The C5 fracture had been fixed. Postsurgery sensation has increased. Spinal cord injury will recover with time, but only time will tell how much.
She was kept on a ventilator support for the first four days, then this support was removed. Her vision, hearing, memory, and speech were quite good. The only issue is frequent congestion in left lung resulting in frequent left lung collapse with saturation level dipping to 75 to 80. The doctors used to perform suction to remove congestion every time and the saturation level used to improve. The day before yesterday, there was a lot of congestion, resulting the saturation to drop to 60. So, the doctors again put her under ventilator support to observe for next three days. They performed bronchoscopy and CT. The results revealed some infection in the left lung. They started some medicine to rectify that infection. Yesterday her chest x-ray throughout the day was absolutely fine and the doctors are saying that ventilator support can be removed if the same situation continues for the next two days.
One significant event occurred yesterday, she had a severe seizure attack and for 15 to 20 minutes, and her situation became critical. At that point, her saturation level dipped to 30 and the heart rate reached to 205. With all the efforts, the doctors were able to restore her to normal. At present, her arm has sensation. However, the part below the waist does not have any feeling. Will she survive this? How critical is she?
