On 16 October 2012, Dr. David Rossner, one of the doctors treating Yousafzai, said that initial assessments by members of staff had been conducted, that detailed assessments from other specialists will follow, and that they are pleased with the progress she has made so far.The director of a brain injury program at another hospital reported that since Yousafzai was shot in the left side of the head, she may have weakness on the right side of the body in the future, and have deficits in language abilities. “It’s six months to a year before you get a sense of what the long-term damage is”, he said.On 17 October, reports from England said that Yousufzai has come out of her coma, is responding well to treatment and has a good chance of fully recovering without any brain damage.
