Michael Schumacher Out Of Hospital Following Head Injury
New reports reveal that despite Formula 1 champion, Michael Schumacher being discharged from the hospital where he began his recovery from a brain injury, there is still a long way to go in terms of his rehabilitation.
Schumacher had his accident while skiing at the Meribel resort in France on 29th December last year. His accident involved a blow to the head and he suffered a severe brain injury. He was immediately taken to hospital where the doctors put him into a coma to ease the pressure on his brain and he has been in a coma for the last few months.
Long Phase Of Rehabilitation Expected
On Monday it was announced officially that Michael was out of the Grenoble hospital and was being transferred to University Hospital Lausanne in Switzerland where he will receive rehabilitation care. The centre is closer to his family home and it is expected that he will be in the centre for a sustained period of time.
It is understood that he was out of intensive care and that although there had not been a significant improvement he is having more periods of consciousness than he was a few months ago. Reports also say he is requiring lots of rests. Spokesperson, Sabine Kehm said in a statement: “Michael has left the CHU Grenoble [hospital] to continue his long phase of rehabilitation. He is not in a coma anymore.”
