HELP

My dad burnt with a gas bottle that caught fire and was under sedation for 4 weeks (morfine &  dormicum). He was then transferred from ICU to another ward, but cannot sit, lift his arms or walk as he is very weak. He is alsy very disorientated. If they send him to a rehabilitation centre, how long with it take for him to be able to walk again?

It is very difficult to advise, as it will depend from person to person. It can however, take months for him to recover.

Good luck.
