My son fell off the monkey bars at school on to his head almost 3 years ago and has NOT been the same since. He is now 8.
They left him in the office puking all over himself for a hour and a half, not recognizing anyone (sister ect) pupils hugely dialated, falling asleep ect before calling me at work to come and get him!!! They didnt even call 911??? I flew down there thinking he just hurt himself to find him by himself in the office because it was lunch hour sitting in his puke holding a bag didnt even know who I was so I grabbed him brought him to Emerge up the road ASAP to find he had a severe concussion.

His learning, anxiety and depression issues have all worsened since this time???
He just has not been the same since? What are the statistics or if you have anything I can reference to to see if this can be from his fall??
Thanks for listening

What a horrific experience. I don't know what statistics you are looking for.
Do you take your son to the pediatrician for regular checkups? Have you discussed your concerns and noted changes in your son's behavior with the doctor? What does he or she have to say?
Has it been recommended that your son be treated by a neurologist?
Have any follow-up diagnostic imaging scans been done, such as an MRI, to access any residual damage from the accident?
