i spent 9 years working the OR, Darnell Army Hospital, FT Hood, Brook Army Medical Center, San Antonio, and 3 civilian hospitals.
In that time, we had very few deaths in the OR. Some were expected from trauma and such, others from bad health. But we had a few very healthy ASA 1 patients that died, no explaination, no reason, but they just died.
It took about 20 months to solve these and other deaths around the nation. The cause of the deaths were incompatibilities with herbs or things bought at health food stores that interacted with the drugs in the patients.
this is one of the reasons they are trying to keep people from getting things at health stores. there is big money in it and the drug companies want that money, using the deaths as leverage.
I am not telling you not to seek health alternatives, but do keep your doctor in the loop. If she is on drug x and you give her herbal tea y, you might get compound z forming and that would harm your daughter.
Also, I have a good friend who survived a TBI and if you email me, I will see if she wants to talk to you. She was not expected to live, and is currently finishing college.
I think she would, but she could help you to understand what your daughter is going through, as she still has problems to this day as a result of it, sleeping being on the problems as well as some stress over the years she lost recovering.
