Massa Wakes Up From Coma
“Another scan on Monday afternoon showed that the 28-year-old's brain swelling had subsided, moving the medical team to wake him up and withdraw the artificial breathing,” said a report revealed by the GMM news agency yesterday.
“Massa is said to now be conscious and has spoken his first words since the crash. A full recovery is now expected, with the biggest concern now being the condition of his damaged left eye,” added the report.
During the course of yesterday, it has emerged that Massa also suffered some considerable damage to his left eye that might lead – allegedly – to his complete retirement from the sport. Neither the Brazilian's doctor nor representatives of the AEK hospital have given any further clarifications on the matter, although they did confirm the eye damage.
As it surfaced in the media late yesterday, it's also unlikely that Massa will be moved from Budapest to a medical center in Paris – as reposted by Brazilian TV station Globo – given his improved medical condition. According to Massa's doctor Dino Altmann, his client's recovery might take a lot shorter than initially expected.
