Drug Induced Comas and Physical/Mental Therapy afterwards

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

I'm attempting to write a novel an I'm hoping someone here might know a bit more than me about how long it takes to regain the use of your limbs after three years in a coma. What type of physical/mental therapist would be suggested by the doctor? For how long? And how exactly is a coma induced? Does the doctor have to keep feeding drugs to keep the patient in a coma, or does the patient stay in the coma once the drug is administered? [The patient doesn't remember the crash and is 'suffering' from memory repression.]

Thanks in advance.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
